PHNOM PENH: SEA Games provides a unique chance for Cambodia to show its potential as a viable and attractive destination for investors, tourists, and businesses. As such, the Cambodian government has invested heavily in the necessary infrastructure, logistics, and security to ensure a smooth and successful event.
In a recent interview with AKP, H.E. Ky Sereyvath, an Economics expert and the Director-General of the Institute of China Studies at the Royal Academy of Cambodia, highlighted the significant benefits that the 32nd SEA Games will provide for Cambodia, despite the significant amount of money spent by the government for the event.
H.E. pointed out that the SEA Games will attract more investors to Cambodia through the spread of information about Cambodia by international media worldwide.
He explained that as the host country, Cambodia offers free entry for all spectators, free accommodations and food for all participating delegates, and free broadcasting rights to various international media partners, creating a positive image of Cambodia.
This publicity is expected to attract more investors and businesses to the country and boost the tourism industry, which will bring in revenue for the people. Additionally, the SEA Games will promote development, democracy, and patriotism among the Cambodian people.
Cambodia was widely praised by the participating countries for the warm hospitality and friendship displayed during the games. The upcoming SEA Games in 2023 will welcome over 12,400 athletes, coaches, and staff from the ten ASEAN member countries and Timor-Leste.
