Hi, Mr Dara,

I'm glad that I came across your blog while I was searching about Cambodian law on Financial management in 1995. I would like to know if you could do me a favor? Would you mind telling me whether there is any other amendment on the law stated above aside from the one made in 1995. More particularly, I would like to know about whether there has been any changes in Patent regulation since then.
Thanks in advance for any reply.

Best regards,
Leng
