Selected Impromptu Comments at the Groundbreaking Ceremony to Build the National Road 58 from Poi Pet in Banteay Meanjei to Samraong City in Uddar Meanjei

I am so happy to return to this province for the groundbreaking ceremony to build the 174 Km National Road 58. If I am not mistaken, last year, with HE Bu Jianguo, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China, I came to the province of Banteay Meanjei on March 10, 2014 to put into official use the National Road 59 linking the National Road 5 to the province of Pailin. This means that a year ago we put into official use a 100 Km road and now we are building another 174 Km road today. I am so proud of the development in the Kingdom of Cambodia despites some obstacles. It is normal for a country in development that there are some peculiar issues. I am sure the Cambodian people will come up with judgment of what has been happening.

A Course Special for Women Officials

As is reported by HE Pich Bunthin on a special training course that I also like to take this chance to express my sincere thank to involvement made by the Ministry of Environment and Tourism. HE Pich Bunthin has made an appeal in his report for institutions to consider different models of cooperation on issue of training in order to bolster qualification for our officials at all levels. The Ministry of Public Functions will be ready for that kind of cooperation of all forms and professions. As far as this topic is concerned, I have discussed with HE Sar Kheng. Now, the Cabinet requests the Royal School of Administration to conduct a training course specially for female officials who have been appointed Secretary of State, Undersecretary of State, Deputy Governors of provinces and districts, General Secretary and Deputy General Secretary. I wanted to know if it is able to cater to this need. I would delegate the matter to Deputy Prime Minister HE Sar Kheng.

One-Year Anniversary of the First Cabinet Meeting

I am so glad today to be able to participate with all of you in this ceremony to present diplomas for graduates of the Chamroeun University of Polytechnics. Today, as everyone could recall, is the first anniversary of the first Cabinet meeting after the first parliamentary session on September 23 of 2013 under the presidency of HM the King. It also falls on the Phjum Ben day or the fifteenth day of the Buddhist ceremony. Our Phjum Ben day this year falls on 23 September 2014, when last year it was the day that HM the King summoned all 123 members of the National Assembly for its first meeting. Only 68 of them were present. On 24 September 2014, we started the process of establishing the Royal Government, which was yesterday. On the 25 September 2013, we held the first Cabinet meeting when we launched the Rectangular Strategy Phase III.
