RDB is New Board Member
Under Article 9.1 of the ADFIAP Constitution which
provides for Board representation of not more than 30 members with
voting Ordinary Member status, the Rural Development Bank of Cambodia is
now a member of the ADFIAP Board. It will be represented by its Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Son Koun Thor.
RDB started as a
Special Member on Observed Status in 2002, and has since been active and
supportive of ADFIAP’s programs and activities up until its full
membership in ADFIAP in 2004. This May, RDB will host an SME symposium
for banks and financial institutions in Cambodia with funding support
from Germany’s InWEnt and technical assistance from Manila-based

RDB is an state-owned bank established in 1998. It is an autonomous
wholesale bank supporting retail financial institutions
(non-governmental organizations, micro-finance institutions), which
deliver credit for the promotion of agriculture, rural enterprise and
the development of the rural areas of Cambodia.
