A memorandum of under-standing was signed by NOCC President and Tourism Minister Thong Khon and Khmer Holding Group President Chau Inter, who will invest $10,000 into the project, on Friday during a ceremony at NOCC headquarters in front of various representatives of organisations including the Ministry of Economy Finance and the City Hall.

According to Chau Inter, the lottery will see the chances of winning increased from previous editions.
