In July 2018, the Cambodian Christian Business Network was officially registered. This past year
was a formative year as their network has grown both in size and maturity. On the 27th of July 2019, the CCBN celebrated its first birthday by holding a conference with various speakers and panelists and closing it off with a celebratory dinner.
The CCBN was blessed to have guests attend the conference from different regions in Cambodia, such as Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. Not only that, they were encouraged by the 26 delegates from the neighboring country, Vietnam, to develop themselves even further as ambassadors for Christ in the workplace.
Mrs. Karona Than, a local businesswoman working in Phnom Penh, was also highly appreciated as a speaker and was an inspiration to them in terms of her professionalism, success, and leadership as a woman.
Mr Ong, director of PhillipBank Cambodia, closed the meeting with a short but very strong message about keeping God first in their businesses. He shared some of his experiences how he chose to follow the path of integrity in difficult decisions.
The CCBN would like to thank its sponsors: Phillip Bank, EHC, Shift 360, Sovannak Palm Sugar, River Tackle Co.,Ltd., Making It Easy, The Light Sport & Décor, Family Clinic, Phnom Penh Dental Clinic, KROMA APP and Eden Florist; its speakers: Pastor Heng Cheng, Mrs. Pham Linh, Dr. Chou Meanserey, Dr. Kheng Sisanara, Mr. Kong Kimsophat, Mrs. Than Karona, Mr. Tami Pierre, Pastor Nguyen Joshua, and Mr. Ong Teong Hoon; and the volunteers that helped make the conference possible.
