Cambodia to Hold Photo Exhibition on Phnom Penh’s Development in Past 40 Years

Phnom Penh Capital Hall is going to hold a photo exhibition on the evolution of Phnom Penh since 1979 to show the capital's development in the past 40 years.

While paying a courtesy call on Minister of Information H.E. Khieu Kanharith at the ministry yesterday, H.E. Lim Bun Hok, an Advisor to the Phnom Penh Capital Hall, said the forthcoming exhibition will feature the evolution of the capital in terms of physical infrastructure such as streets, buildings and other constructions.

People's lifestyles and living conditions from 1979 to the present time will also be showcased on the occasion, he added.

For his part, H.E. Khieu Kanharith voiced his support to the exhibition's organisation and agreed with H.E. Lim Bun Hok's request to use documentary photos of the Agence Kampuchea Presse (AKP), the state-owned news agency.

According to H.E. Lim Bun Hok, the photo exhibition will be organised on the occasion of the 40th General Assembly of International Association of Francophone Mayors (AIMF) to be hosted by Cambodia on Dec. 3-4, 2019.

The two-month-long exhibition will be opened for the public from Dec. 2, 2019 until late January 2020, at the public place behind the Chaktomuk Conference Hall to Cambodiana Hotel, and at Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel, the venue for AIMF General Assembly.
