Work on Camsoc Secretariat gets priority

The Cambodia SEA Games Organizing Committee (Camsoc) at its Thursday morning meeting at the Peace Palace, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Head of the Panel Teah Banh, decided to speed up the process of setting up the General Secretariat of Camsoc for the effective implementation of administrative decisions and coordinating mechanisms.

The first meeting of the committee, which was set up nearly a year ago by Prime Minister Hun Sen, discussed a range of issues as the primary body authorised with the task of hosting the 2023 SEA Games, which the Kingdom will host for the first time in its history.

Budgetary analysis figured prominently, with a consensus emerging that the Ministry of Economy should coordinate with other relevant ministries to ensure the timely allocation of funds.

There was also a unified stand on strengthening the work of the National Training Center with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport.

After extensive discussions on the possible dates for the 2023 Games, it was decided to let the political leaders make that crucial call in what will be an election year.
