Notable Quotes, Monday Edition

While no longer publishing a print edition, the Cambodia Daily is expanding its online presence. Our transition to an online format began with the revamping of our Khmer-language Facebook page, which now features audio and video content. We plan to further build our digital presence in 2018 and are seeking experienced international journalists–inside Cambodia or further afield—to help us. Candidates must have solid news judgement, strong writing skills, and the ability to produce news stories and analytical pieces in English under tight deadline. For more information or to express interest, please contact us at info@cambodiadaily.com
