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.

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.

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.

Dealing with Unforeseeable Circumstances

Today, I am so happy to join with all of 4,415 graduates of the National University of Management in their graduation and diploma presentation ceremony. It is important for me to remind you that the most important factor in work is getting ready for unforeseeable circumstances. Just now, it is an unforeseeable circumstance in fact. When all four thousand people here stand to salute the national anthem, the music was not on. What can we do? If I were not to tell you to be at ease, we would have stood here.
