You are here: Working Groups
EuroCham’s Sectorial Committees provide an effective advocacy forum for its members to address common affairs through the promotion of business interests to theCambodian government. They are an integral part of EuroCham’s lobbying activities. Their work includes the drafting of EuroCham’s position papers and subsequently forms the basis of EuroCham’s Whitebook and advocacy mandate.
Sectorial Committees are not legal entities, but internal working groups of EuroCham, and as such are subject to Sectorial Committee rules and regulations; and the provisions of the Statute and the laws of Cambodia.
While EuroCham supports the Sectorial Committees and their activities, the initiative has to come from the private sector both at a founding and operational level.
Along these lines, once officially approved and established, although Sectorial Committees work under the EuroCham umbrella, they are essentially autonomous. Each Committee independently sets its advocacy goals, defines its membership fee and decides on its internal working procedure. In addition to issuing an annual position paper on the main issues affecting the Sectorial Committees’ business in Cambodia, the Committees are also encouraged to generate events (luncheons, seminars and dialogues) and other public affairs initiatives on behalf of EuroCham.
Eurocham Committee Rules
Composed of professionals from the European private sector, Eurocham committees aim at strengthening and developing a favorable investment environment in Cambodia.
On behalf and also for the benefit of members and in the form of position papers, Committees’ participants identify business issues, drive analysis and provide recommendations.
This critical task of advocacy will be achieved in a “white book”, the backbone of Eurocham active support to the Cambodian government, agencies and institutions.
The Committees are not legal entities. The Committees are internal working groups of Eurocham, and as such subject only to these Committee rules or the provisions of the Eurocham Statutes.
