Relationship gets another go

World Brief

BANGKOK — Thailand and Cambodia are hoping to renew their cooperation on TV and film production, which was disrupted in 2003 after anti-Thai protests in Cambodia.

Reps of the biz from both countries joined Thai Culture Assn. chairman Tej Bunnang and permanent secretary of the Cambodian Culture and Fine Arts Ministry Soekun Som at the Foreign Affairs Ministry in Bangkok late last month.

Cambodian industryites are particularly interested in training in production techniques such as lighting and script writing to upgrade skills. However, Bunnang says the joint operation will focus more on cultural exchanges at first.

The next meeting will be held in Nakhon Ratchasima, a northeastern province of Thailand, June 16-17.
