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.

Local Financial and Human Resource

My wife and I are so happy to be able to join all of you in this inauguration ceremony of the Stoeng Meanjei overpasses, the third site in the city where we build overpasses to improve traffic. I am so pleased to have been here in a space of one year in between – on 26 November 2013 to review the construction and today for the inauguration. I was here that time to put into official use parts of the overpasses for the demand of traffic and that were not hindering the remaining construction. At the time, there was news that I already ran out of the country. Many of the press people here could have remembered that Hun Sen was standing right here. Today, with all of the Buddhist monks, followers, Excellencies, Ladies and our compatriots, we put into official use this major achievement.
