brings together international technology experts and participants from the NGO and Civil Society sectors.It takes place on March 13th - 14th 2013 at Norton University in downtown Phnom Penh.

This year's theme is Capacity Building and Youth Empowerment through Technology.

"Technology - and in particular the internet - is becoming such a huge part of everybody's lives," said EZECOM CEO Paul Blanche-Horgan. "As the country's leading ICT company we welcome events such as TechCamp that show the public and the youth how to get the most out of everyday technologies and, of course, the internet."

The TechCamp program comes under United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's Civil Society (CS) 2.0 initiative which aims to galvanize the technology community to support Civil Societies around the world and to help them put technology to better use.

According to Hillary Rodham Clinton, Secretary of State, "We seek to support civil society efforts worldwide because we believe that civil society helps to make communities more prosperous and stable. It helps to drive economic growth that benefits the greatest number of people. And it pushes political institutions to be agile and responsive to the people they serve. So the United States is launching an initiative called Civil Society 2.0. This galvanized effort will provide new technologies to civil society organizations. We will send experts in digital technology and communications to help build capacity."

The Phnom Penh TechCamp will include a speech by the United States Ambassador to Cambodia as well as a keynote address. Activities will include 'high speed presentations', group discussions, interactive training sessions, brainstorming sessions and a certificate ceremony.

EZECOM is a Platinum sponsor.
