Government To Conduct Census of Associations and NGOs

Ministry of Interior is conducting a census of all associations and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in Cambodia shortly.

The update was shared recently with local media by the Director General of the ministry’s General Department of Administration H.E. Prak Samoeun, adding that as of 2018, there were 5,523 listed associations and NGOs in Cambodia.

For 2018 alone, he pointed out, the Ministry of Interior registred 289 associations and NGOs.

Among listed associations and NGOs, only some 2,000 have sent their reports to the ministry, continued the director general.

The census will tell exact number of listed associations and NGOs operating in the country, especially whether they are active or not.
