Selected Impromptu Comments in Addition to the Prepared Text on Outlook Conference 2015 – ASEAN Economic Community 2015 and Beyond: Reform Agenda

First of all, I am asking for your understanding concerning the changing of schedule. I planned to read this speech in the morning. However, since we had this protocol to accompany their Majesties to have a medical checkup in the People’s Republic of China, I then proposed two options – 1) I would send someone on my behalf and 2) we change our conference opening from morning to afternoon. It did indeed cause some difficulties to some of you. However, absence of the Prime Minister at the time when Their Majesties leave the country would not be a good protocol. I am asking for understanding from the Cambodia Development Resource Institute (CDRI) as well as the conference participants. I also notice here Ms Eva Mysliwiec who mothered CDRI in our difficult time at Tuol Kork with HE Chea Chanto, then Minister of Planning. CDRI has now reached its twenty some years or in other word a fully grown young man. I also noted the presence of HE Fumiaki Takahashi, former Ambassador (of Japan to the Kingdom of Cambodia). It is good to meet everyone.

Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen

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.
