Selected Extempore Comments at the Graduation and Diploma Presenting Ceremony of the Royal School of Administration

A Course Special for Women Officials

As is reported by HE Pich Bunthin on a special training course that I also like to take this chance to express my sincere thank to involvement made by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. HE Pich Bunthin has made an appeal in his report for institutions to consider different models of cooperation on issue of training in order to bolster qualification for our officials at all levels. The Ministry of Public Functions will be ready for that kind of cooperation of all forms and professions. As far as this topic is concerned, I have discussed with HE Sar Kheng. Now, the Cabinet requests the Royal School of Administration to conduct a training course specially for female officials who have been appointed Secretary of State, Undersecretary of State, Deputy Governors of provinces and districts, General Secretary and Deputy General Secretary. I wanted to know if it is able to cater to this need. I would delegate the matter to Deputy Prime Minister HE Sar Kheng.

Selected Impromptu Comments at the Closing Session of the 36th Annual Review Meeting of the Ministry of Health

In addition to the prepared text, Samdech Techo Hun Sen made some comments that are selected and translated here followed:

Private Physicians

We should do more work to strengthen healthcare at the local level, where the state and private physicians are providing services altogether. The case of the village of Rokar is concerned, I think it is a big problem as far as administering and management of physicians that are spread throughout the county is concerned. In the beginning I could not pull myself to believe what happened. How come HIV/AIDS could spread to hundreds of people? After we have conducted thorough research, I come to a conclusion that it is a big issue.
