DFDL has the pleasure and honor to host a breakfast workshop on Trust: a structure to manage your family and corporate assets on Tuesday 7 March 2023, from 8am to 12pm at Raffles Hotel Le Royal, Phnom Penh, under the high patronage of His Excellency Sok Dara Director General of the Trust Regulator.
In 2019, Cambodia introduced a new Trust Law followed by implementing regulations which together have been a major development for the Country’s legal and commercial landscape. A trust is a legal arrangement which allows a trustee to hold property for the benefit of another person. The trust sector in Cambodia is still relatively new although recently there has been some publicity regarding the role of trustees especially with respect to the control and management of immovable property.
Our breakfast workshop will provide you with a deep understanding of commercial and personal trusts which will enable you to make informed decisions for your investments and give you an insight into the regional taxation trends that Cambodia may follow in the future. Our expert speakers at this breakfast workshop will include His Excellency Sok Dara, Ms. Sokhary Chhean, Director of Department of Legal Affairs and Inspection, and DFDL experts, Ms. Vansok Khem, Partner – Deputy Head of Corporate and Commercial Practice, Ms. Davy Kong, Co-Head of Real Estate and Construction Practice and Mr. Jonathan Blaine, Thailand Tax Director and Co-Head of Regional Compliance & Investigations Practice.
After the presentations, there will be a panel discussion with our DFDL and market experts joined by Ms. Buth Bunseyha, Executive Vice President & Group Chief Legal Officer and Company Secretary of ACLEDA Bank, followed by a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask your questions and interact with the speakers.
Book your seat now and stay tuned for the full agenda!
