Selected Impromptu Comments at the Graduation and Diploma Presenting Ceremony of the Royal University of Phnom Penh

Development Needs Human Resource

It is my pleasure to once again join with all of you to present diplomas for 3,523 graduates of the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP). Since 1988, I have participated 19 times to present diploma in RUPP. I am so delighted to have listened to the report of HE Tith Chamnan in relation to the overall progress made in RUPP. We have all learned that this is the oldest university of the country. It has attracted most students to study here too. The maintenance of such reputation as a state university with quality education standard is a guarantee for future of our students in this and forthcoming generations. I would like to take this opportunity to give my appreciation to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports as well as leaders, rector and vice rectors, professors, staff of RUPP for making efforts in the past for the university to function.

Selective Impromptu Comments at the Graduation and Diploma Presenting Ceremony for Asia-Europe University [Unofficial Translation]

Human Resource Priority Number One

I am glad to be able to join with all of you in the graduation and diploma presenting ceremony for 1,928 graduates of Bachelors, Masters and Ph D levels. The report really makes me proud of the path taken by Asia-Europe University which started over ten years ago as an organization specialized in skills development and training. It has now become one of the universities with senior professional studies, where there are also enrollments of foreign students. Where are the three Chinese students? I see that they all are female. Among all four priority areas set from the beginning – water, roads, electricity and human resource – human resource has now taken the number one priority position. It has now become the primary angle that we will make investment.

Selected Impromptu Comments during the Meeting with Cambodian Workers in the Course of the Official Visit to the Republic of Korea [Unofficial Translation]

In the course of attending the commemorative ASEAN-ROK Summit in Busan, Samdech Techo Hun Sen took the time in his busy schedule to meet with Cambodian workers, from which CNV extracted and translated some of those comments.

Reasons Behind Accepting Cambodian Laborers to South Korea 

I would like to comment on why the government of South Korea accept the presence of our labourers in their country, especially in Busan. Is it because of the rivalry or the alliance between Cambodia and South Korea? On this issue, I would like to recall the truths on history of relationship between our two nations. As we all know, Korea was divided into two parts: North Korea and South Korea. There were times Cambodia worked with both of them, or worked only with the North side, and sometimes we work only with the South side. On the other hand, we have compromised according to our framework in foreign affair policy, and brought along a signing of diplomatic relations in 1996.

Selected Extempore Comments during the Graduation and Diploma Presenting Ceremony for the New Khmer Generation Institute [Unofficial Translation]

I am glad to be with all of you and respected Buddhist monks, Excellencies, ladies and gentle men on this very auspicious occasion of the graduation and diploma presenting ceremony to 1997 students of the New Khmer. I am glad that this Institute of New Khmer Generation (NKGI) has grown up from formerly the New Khmer Generation League, as is reported by Director Nob Narin. As I used to mention on various occasions, getting an institute to start up is a difficult job but securing its sustainable development is no less. Some have come up with ideas and projects but could not realize them, either because of mismanagement or no participation from concerned circles. This case is true not only for projects planned by private or non-governmental organization but by government too.

Selected Impromptu Comments at the Graduation Ceremony of Norton University [Unofficial Translation]

With Peace We Make Education

I am so happy to return for the graduation ceremony for 2,501 students of the Norton University. The University’s rector Chan Sokheang has made a report already relating to the progress made by the University. All I could recall is that the University was the one that actively takes part in the implementation of the Royal Government’s policy on issue of private investment in the field of education. I remember that in 1997, I came for the inauguration of the university itself. I am quite encouraged by the fact that in time that the country was still in war, the rector, who was then a single man, dared to invest in establishing this university.

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.
