Removing Old Ones, They React; Keeping Them, New Ones React

…The question is when they win elections, who do they bring into workplace? They are ready to chase out those who are currently work and blamed for being devalued in a message “keeping current officials and pay more.” In this case, for supporters who sold out their cows and oxen, buffaloes to support the Party, how can they get jobs, since the old ones will go on?

Selected Impromptu Comments at the Graduation and Diploma Presentation Ceremony of the Vanda Institute

Most Female Students, Quality Education

I am so glad today to be able to join with all of you once again in presenting diploma for 3,169 graduates of the Vanda Institute. This institute has the most female students. This is what the Royal Government would like to have. When I presided over the inauguration of AEON Supermarket and Mall, I met a number of young employees. They claimed to have graduated from Vanda Institute. In another inauguration ceremony of the Cho Ray Hospital Phnom Penh, accountants working there also told me they graduated from Vanda Institute. This has ascertained the fact presented in the report that among 3,169 students, 2,672 of them have already found their jobs.

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.

Selected Extempore Comments during the Graduation and Diploma Presentation Ceremony of the National University of Management [Unofficial Translation]

Dealing with Unforeseeable Circumstances

Today, I am so happy to join with all of 4,415 graduates of the National University of Management in their graduation and diploma presentation ceremony. It is important for me to remind you that the most important factor in work is getting ready for unforeseeable circumstances. Just now, it is an unforeseeable circumstance in fact. When all four thousand people here stand to salute the national anthem, the music was not on. What can we do? If I were not to tell you to be at ease, we would have stood here.
