I am so happy today to be able to come preside over the graduation of 1,823 students of the Asia-Europe University in the early part of the Year of Horse of the Buddhist Year of 2558. It is a good thing to present diploma at the start of a New Year like this. I listened to the report of the Asia-Europe University (AEU) rector, Duong Lieng, concerning the progress made by the University. First started as a non-governmental organization in area of education, the University has now a 15-storey building of its own.
I am glad to join with all of our Buddhist monks, Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen, on this graduation and diploma presenting ceremony of the Human Resource University (HRU) for its 1794 graduates. The report of the HRU’s leader, once again has taken our attention to the development of the HRU, which has in fact started as a non-governmental organization. The progress made concerning the development of human resource here witnesses the share that HRU contributed and the growing relations HRU has with other institutions as partner. It is indeed my pleasure to see that we have assured expansion of education with the help of the private sector.
Today I have a great pleasure to come to the Vanda Institute again to preside over the graduation and diploma presenting ceremony for 3,440 students. This is my eighth times here. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the efforts made by the Institute, as is reported by HE Heng Vanda, concerning its progress and expansion of services from Phnom Penh to the city of Siem Reap and Battambang, which is under construction. The progress made by Vanda Institute in particular has shown a streamlining national movement in education as a whole since the day of liberation – 7 January. With our policy at a later stage to allow private investment in the field of human resource development, the education service has become a national movement where thousands upon thousands are benefitting from.
I am so glad to join with all of our Buddhist monks and our compatriots, together with Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, for the inauguration of the Atai Hydropower plant and transmission lines to Phnom Penh and from Phnom Penh to Battambang province, via the provinces of Kompong Chhnang and Pursat. The Atai Hydropower plant produces 120 MW. The electricity from Atai is running through the substations of O Saom and Pursat with transmission lines of 175 Km. We also put into official operation today transmission lines from Phnom Penh to Battambang province of 302 Km. These achievements have

Today, it is my pleasure to participate with Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen in the Closing of the 2012-2013 Stocktaking and 2013-2014 Direction Setting Conference organized by the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport (MoEYS).

I have a great pleasure to be able to come and join with the Buddhist monks, Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, the Ambassador and our people to put into official use the National Road 57B that is running 176 Kilometers long in the Cambodian territory. Yesterday I had a concern if I could make a journey this far or not since I had a fever and I am still having some of it now. It all started on last Sunday but I still went to preside over the celebration of the Cultural Day event. The night of Monday, the fever was terrible. On the following Tuesday, I had a meeting from 8 am through to 12:30 pm. The fever got worse. I still have one more event to take part for the graduation and diploma presenting ceremony of the
Your Excellencies, Neak Oknha, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today, I am very delighted to join all of you once again in this auspicious 17th Government-Private Sector Forum (G-PSF). This is the first G-PSF being held after the Royal Government of the Fifth Legislature was formed after free, fair, transparent and just general elections on 28 July 2013.

It is my great pleasure today to preside over the opening of the 2014 Cambodia Outlook Conference on the very timely theme of “Cambodia the Next Five Years – Reform and Competitiveness in an Integrated Region”. This is the eighth occasion on which I have had the pleasure of delivering the opening keynote address in this outlook conference. I wish to once again congratulate CDRI and ANZ Royal Bank on their initiative in hosting this important annual conference, which brings together officials from the Royal Government, and senior representatives of the private sector, the research community, non-government organisations, and international development partners to consider Cambodia’s achievements, the challenges we face, and how we can work together to overcome those challenges for the benefit of our nation.
Today, I am so happy to be in the province of Preah Sihanouk once again to put into official use the 100 MW coal fired station and, taking this opportune moment, to inaugurate from here the 230 KV power transmission line from Udong of Kompong Speu to the province of Kompong Cham. We may note together that this is the first Cambodian coal fired power station ever. Just now, the Executive Director of Leader Company, Dato Seri H’ng Bok San, thanked our officials for taking their times to join this event. I think it is their pleasures to be here because Preah Sihanouk province and city is the tourist destination. My presence here today signifies a new achievement in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
