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.


The 104th International Women’s Day Meeting at the Peace Building of the Council of Ministers

In addition to the prepared text to commemorate the 104th International Women’s Day, Samdech Techo Hun Sen touched on a number of issues as followed:

Hostels for Female Students

With regard to female students in education, we have brought up many times about the fact that women and men have equal rights for education. That has been ensured in primary education level. However, when they go up to secondary and tertiary levels of education, the number of female students has gone down. It is still an issue. We must seek the means to resolve the issue. The provision of hostels for female students could be one of the options.
