Selected Impromptu Comments at the Graduation and Diploma Presentation Ceremony of the Western University [Unofficial Translation]

Peace and Development, Otherwise Instability and Destruction

I am so pleased to be able to meet with professors and students of the Western University today. We will have a diploma presenting ceremony together. I have noticed that more and more universities have chosen the Exhibition Centre of Koh Pich for their graduation and diploma presenting ceremony taking into consideration that there are more and more people attending their ceremonies. Mr. Te Norin, rector of the Western University, already clarified in his report about the progress made in the university. In fact, we have today 2,330 graduates – most of who have either found jobs or created ones for themselves – to be presented with diplomas. It is also a remarkable note to keep that 70% of those in pursuit of their studies also are carrying out life of work and study together.

Selected Impromptu Comments at the Launch of National Disability Strategic Plan for 2014/18 and the Fifth Anniversary of the Law on Protection and Promotion of Rights of Disabilities [Unofficial Translation]

Issue of 2% of Obligatory Recruitment of Disables in Public Work

As far as this matter of disables recruited for work in public institutions, I would urge the Minister of Social Affairs, Veteran and Youth Rehabilitation (MSAVYR) to discuss with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MEYS) on this. We have 190,000 government employees and 110,000 of them are teachers. (With regard to recruiting 2% of their staff from disables and 1% in private workplace) 2% of the 110,000 number is worth reconsidering. I urge the MSAVRY to bring this issue up with MEYS. Imagine if some disables have had to stand teaching. For other job functions, they would find something to fit them. They have their problems. One of my friends got amputated and is standing teaching with one leg. We do not want to see this.

Selected Extempore Comments during the Graduation and Diploma Presenting Ceremony of the Vanda Institute of Accounting [Unofficial Translation]

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 time 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 2014. 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 benefiting from.
