Cham Prasidh (Khmer: ចម ប្រសិទ្ធ; born May 16, 1951 in Phnom Penh) is the Cambodian Minister of Industry and Handicrafts. He previously served as a Senior Minister and Minister of Commerce for 15 years. He is a member of the Cambodian People's Party and was elected to represent Siem Reap Province in the National Assembly of Cambodia in 2003.

Cham was born Ung You Teckhor to an ethnic Chinese family who were engaged in Entrepot trade. His father, Ung You Y, served as the member of parliament for Stung Treng province during Lon Nol's regime before the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia.

After the 2013 general elections, the Ministry of Industry, Mines, and Energy was split into two separate ministries: the Ministry of Industry and the Handicrafts and Ministry of Mines and Energy with the reasoning that the scale of work was too big for one ministry to handle.
