Camsoc to create digital platform for 2023 Games

The 2023 Cambodian SEA Games Organising Committee (Camsoc) on Wednesday met for the the first time since its formation to chalk out its administrative course and assign responsibilities to various sub-panels for the successful hosting of the Games.

The biennial multi-discipline Southeast Asian sporting showpiece is set to be held in Cambodia for the first time in the Kingdom’s history.

The meeting was held at the headquarters of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) and attended by all nominated members and organisations of the committee, including NOCC President Thong Khon and secretary-general Vath Chamroeun, was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defence Tea Banh.

While discussing in depth the mechanisms for the smooth and efficient hosting of the Games, the meeting served as an opportunity for members to get know each other and synergise their efforts to coordinate administrative and logistical processes in implementing the master plan approved by the Royal Government.

Significant among some of the decisions taken during the meeting was the creation of a reliable, extensive and user-friendly digital platform that can capture the Games in all their glory for the benefit of not just the people of Cambodia but those around the region and across the globe.

“It is an important first step and we intend to set it up in the quickest time possible,” said NOCC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun, who also serves CAMSOC in the same role.

“Several sub-committees have been formed so responsibilities and tasks can be shared and supervised. We want these panels to utilise the experiences drawn from attending other SEA Games to strengthen the administrative pathway.”

“We would like to see members interact with the countries that have gained knowledge and expertise in organising SEA Games so that those inputs will be beneficial in dealing with organisational challenges and issues.”

The meeting also outlined to national federations their important role in pooling contributions by way of better human resource management and the training of athletes, coaches and technical crews.

In addition, Camsoc has decided to extend its support to the second National Games to be held between May 25 and June 5.
