Cambodian delegation joins ANOC assembly

Cambodian sports authorities have honoured an invitation from the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) to join its general assembly in Moscow, which began yesterday and runs until next Wednesday.

National Olympic Committee of Cambodia secretary-general Vath Chamroeun, NOCC adviser Gabriel Ken and Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport deputy secretary of state Bou Chom Serey comprise the delegation to Russia.

“There are two main goals of this assembly,” Vath Chamroeun said.

“The first is to join the presidential election of the ANOC, as Cambodia is the 196th member of the International Olympic Committee among 205 nations across the world.

The second is to give backing to the new ANOC policy of raising funds to help support the activities of any member nation that is still lacking finance and has not yet developed.”
