International Business Chamber of Cambodia (IBC) is set to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on March 15, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency in Phnom Penh which is supported by 140 members and sponsors.

Nine candidates have been nominated for the four open positions on the nine-person Executive Committee (ExCom), with IBC Executive Director Katherine Mclean commented the organization’s membership boasts of a diverse representation in terms of nationality and industry, which is one of its key strengths.

She also mentioned that this year, they have an impressive pool of nine candidates who come from various sectors such as Insurance and Hospitality, all of whom have strong backgrounds. She further stated that IBC members may find it challenging to select only four candidates given their exceptional credentials.
