HE ROYAL Group of Companies, is planning to open more offices in Phnom Penh and

the provinces selling the Canon range of products.

Tieng Kith, a

Cambodian-Australian, 32, vice chairman of RGC which started here in 1991 said:

"RGC plans to set up two or three shops selling Canon products in the very near

future in the provinces, and one more in Phnom Penh.

"The shops will

sell items such as: Photocopiers, Fax machines, Electronic typewriters,

computers, calculators and cameras, subsequently we will have separate shops

selling specific items to cater better to consumer needs.

Kith said:

"Since the business began three years ago it has been expanding rapidly,

especially in the last few months."

"This month RGC has invested

$100,000 to open a new Canon photocopier shop in Battambang to meet clients'

needs, especially NGOs based in the province."

"Another office is going

to split from the head office in Phnom Penh and will open very soon aimed at

showing customers the difference between real and fake products.

"My

shops sell only real, high quality, products at a reasonable price, just a

little bit higher than the fake ones", said Kith,

"With high quality and

high professionalism, Canon shops should attract many customers from foreign

companies and agencies, embassies, NGOs and government."

RGC consists of

many companies distributing a range of products: Royal Cambodia Bank, Royal

Company Ltd, Royal Construction, Royal Brick Manufacturer, Royal Studio Video

Production...

Kith said: "The company employs over 300 Cambodians to

work in various areas and many local artisans have been trained by overseas

specialists."

RGC is also planning to set up a computer show room in

Phnom Penh and later a computer training school for eager learners Kith

said.

"The main reason for opening a computer school is to help

Cambodians out of illiteracy, not so much to make money, but rather because I

love Cambodia and Cambodians."
