Phnom Penh (VNA) - The Cambodian SEA Games Organising Committee (CAMSOC) has said it considers the media and volunteers an important part in promoting the 32nd Southeast Asia (SEA) Games and 12th ASEAN Para Games, and making the biennial multi-sport events a success.

In a recent meeting to discuss the registration of local and international journalists at Morodok Techo National Stadium, Phos Sovann, head of the Ministry of Information’s General Department of Information and Broadcasting who also serves on CAMSOC’s information technology committee, said the registration of journalists and issuance of media credentials will begin from March.

CAMSOC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun said he considers the media to be a mirror to reflect the reality of what Cambodia is today and promote the country to the world.

He said people around the world are preparing to focus on Cambodia because it is hosting the 2023 SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games, marking the first time the country has hosted such major international sport events.

Minister of Tourism Thong Khon, who is also permanent vice-president of CAMSOC, expressed his hope that Cambodia will have many volunteers register to help make the SEA Games successful.

At a recent press conference on the official recruitment of volunteers, Khon said that CAMSOC needs about 7,000 volunteers to serve at the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games, which are expected to welcome 7,000 to 8,000 sport delegates./.
