COMMERCE: Registration begins for Siem Reap expo

Early-bird registration fees are now being accepted until January 9 for the Economist Group's business roundtable with the government, to be held at Angkor Palace Resort and Spa on February 16. Early-bird fees for non-members are US$990, compared to the standard fee of $1,250. The conference aims to pair business leaders with top government officials to discuss Cam-business development strategies. "With a liberal economy, low wages, some of the world's greatest tourist sites, Cambodia's prospects as both a tourist destination and a centre for enterprise and investment - on paper at least - appear bright," organisers said.
