On 14 May 2014, ERA hosted a group of young Cambodian entrepreneurs visiting Malaysia through the auspices of the Associated Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry. These group young business visitors are from the Seam Reap Chapter of the Young Entrepreneurs Association of Cambodia who were invited to Malaysia by Tan Sri Dato’ Soong and ACCCIM after a recent trip by Tans Sri Dato’ Soong to Cambodia.
The group consisted of the YEAC Seam Reap Chapter’s President Mr Keara PHANN together with the Secretary Ms Chharpoan PHEM and five members of their Board. Most of the visitors are from the Hospitality Industry owning Boutique Hotels and Resorts in Seam Reap which is world renowned UNESCO site of the Angkor Wat. In addition to the hotels, some of them are also in the Food and Beverage retail business catering to both tourists and locals.
During their visit, our Honorary Secretary Mr KK Ng gave a presentation on ERA Objectives and roles which lead to their President proposing that ERA consider signing an MOU to explore means of assisting the YEAC Seam Reap Chapter to enhance different areas of business and other skills training.
Our President Datin Paduka Yong hosted a dinner for the visitors and our Patron Tan Sri Dato’ Soong at the Royal Selangor Club.
