Gain an in-depth understanding of the regulations, procedures, documentation and other key issues relevant to listing on the Cambodia Stock Exchange (CSX) from leading experts in the legal, accounting, securities and investment fields.

Sciaroni & Associates Partner Joseph Lovell will be joined by Mr. Ronald Almera (CEO, Grant Thornton Cambodia), Mr. Kyung Tae Han (Managing Director, Yuanta Securities) and Mr. Brian Erskine (Head of Asset Management, Forte Insurance). The session will be introduced by Sciaroni & Associates Senior Partner Bretton G. Sciaroni.
