As a member of the Cambodian expatriate community in the U.S., I was happy to read

the first edition of the Phnom Penh Post. At this critical juncture in Cambodian

history, I hope this publication will provide a valuable insight for Cambodians living

abroad into the political, economic, and social developments within our country.

The Phnom Penh Post provides a signal not only to expatriate Cambodians, but also

to friends of Cambodia throughout the world, that the process of Cambodian healing

and recovery is underway.

The establishment of the Phnom Penh Post will play an important role in Cambodia's

quest for peace, democracy, healing, and recovery. I am confident that the Phnom

Penh Post will be a source of objective and professional journalism on the current

situation in Cambodia.

I believe that the Phnom Penh Post will lead the way towards the development of a

vibrant free press in our beloved motherland. I would like to extend my congratulations

to the staff of the Phnom Penh Post for bringing an independent Cambodian voice to

the rest of the world.

Best wishes for the future success of your publication.
