Kingdom's drive to 2023 SEA Games tops NOCC agenda

As the current administration seeks another mandate from 2018 to 2022 at the General Assembly of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia today at the Morodok Techo National Sports Complex, high on the agenda will be the Kingdom’s drive towards the successful hosting of the 32nd SEA Games in 2023.

The morning session, which opens with a welcome address from NOCC President and Minister of Tourism Thong Khon, prominently features a wide-ranging presentation by the head of the Cambodia SEA Games Organizing Committee (CAMSOC) and National Defense Minister Tea Banh about the preparations and logistical groundwork in progress under the master plan already approved by the Royal Government.

Aside from a short video on the activities covering the sixth mandate up to 2017, a representative from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport will deliver an address, which will be followed by the NOCC President reading out the Royal Decree on the formation of CAMSOC and its powers, tasks and responsibilities.

Representatives from almost all the affiliated federations of the NOCC will attend the one-day assembly, which will review activities during the previous term, take up reports on finance, women and sports commissions, sports medicine and science, before approving the final mandate.

Also on the agenda during the session is the appointment of two councillors to the NOCC. And of great significance is the presentation of cash prizes for the KL 2017 SEA Games medallists, as promised before the Games by Vice President of the NOCC Gordon Tang, who will also donate laptops to national federations.

While the floor of the assembly will focus on the role and tasks for the ensuing mandate at the start of the afternoon session, NOCC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun will report on several meetings he and representatives from the sports ministry have had with national federations over the past few months before opening the floor for more discussions on consequential issues.

The secretary-general will also present an in-depth treatise on the 2023 SEA Games master plan before the NOCC’s strategies and priorities for the term will be made known to the assembly.
