CEO VII goes Siem Reap, hosted by RDB

The seventh edition of the annual International Forum for Chief Executives of DFIs (CEO Forum VII) will be held in Siem Reap, Cambodia in November 2010 and will be hosted by the Rural Development Bank of Cambodia (RDB). This was confirmed by RDB’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Son Kon Thour, during the CEO Forum VI held in Manila on October 28-29, 2009. The first three forums, starting in 2004, were held in Kuala Lumpur under the auspices of the Association of DFIs of Malaysia (ADFIM). It moved to Bangkok in 2007 and hosted by the SME Development Bank of Thailand and then back to Kuala Lumpur through ADFIM again in 2008 before this year’s event in Manila.

The CEO Forum, a platform for experience-sharing on latest issues and trends of relevance to ADFIAP members, partners and stakeholders, attracts around one hundred chief executives, board members and senior officers of these institutions worldwide.

The 2010 host RDB was established in January 1998 and received a banking license to operate initially as a specialized bank. The RDB is registered at the Ministry of Commerce and operates under the financial and technical guardianship of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and control of the National Bank of Cambodia (NBC). RDB’s vision is to finance and refinance the country’s financial institutions, micro, small and medium enterprises, and community-based associations in rural and urban areas.
