While Prince Group has a rather prolific presence in Cambodian economy and society, the man behind it all remains largely of an enigma to Cambodians and indeed the large majority of the population, which further fuels interest in wanting to find out more details and know more about this businessman.
It is interesting to note that Chen Zhi Cambodia has managed to stay away from the public eye all this while, despite the fact that the business organisation let by him interacts with all aspects of Cambodian life on a daily basis, via the various business divisions and subsidiaries under its holding.
The probably gives a lot of credit to the management team that he has assembled to run the operations of the vast business group on his behalf.
Known to his staff and associates as Prince ChenZhi at times, most of what we can gather about the man comes from the official statements, press releases and other write-ups that are published on the websites of businesses owned by Chen Zhi Prince Group.
And again, these information are presented in the commercial contexts that Prince Group is involved in and rarely delve into the more personal aspects of the chairman of the group himself.
Even on the Chen Zhi Cambodia official social media accounts – Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, for instance, posts are mainly retweets of news and articles related to Cambodia in the areas of education, community building and so on.
What is increasingly more visible to the public though, is the slew of philanthropic and charity activities that Chen Zhi Prince Group has been involved in over the years, in the midst of, and continuing beyond the pandemic and well we expect well into the future.
Besides donations and contributions to impoverished regions and communities throughout Cambodia where able, Cambodia ChenZhi is also passionate about the long-term growth and capability development of the Cambodian people, and as such as directed efforts to areas such as education, sports and vocational training to name a few.
The collective philanthropic and charitable efforts of the group are spearheaded by Prince Foundation, a separate unit within the group just for this purpose.
Among the various initiatives and projects undertaken by the foundation, of special mention is the the Chen Zhi Scholarship, the education bursary scheme which carries the name of the chairman himself.
The scholarship – an effort in conjunction with Cambodia’s Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport – is an annual scheme that will provide full tuition fees and stipends for 400 selected students over 7 years to pursue their university degrees at top Cambodian universities including Royal University of Phnom Penh, National University of Management, and Institute of Technology of Cambodia. In total, Prince Group Cambodia will fund this endeavour to the tune of US$2 million.
From what we can seen that has been put into motion and implemented on the ground, Cambodia Prince ChenZhi seems to have great aspirations for Cambodia and its people, and is demonstrably investing considerable resources in his personal capacity as well as that of Prince Group’s, into a wide variety of projects involving different sectors of the Cambodian populace.
It is encouraging to see corporations with the means to make the conscious efforts to uplift the community and more so if it is led from the top.
