Japan-Mekong Parliamentary Friendship Association Willing to Support Cambodia’s Priorities

Japan-Mekong Parliamentary Friendship Association is willing to support Cambodia's priorities for its further development.

President of the Japan-Mekong Parliamentary Friendship Association Mr. Ryu Shionoya made the encouraging point when leading a delegation for a courtesy meeting yesterday with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng.

In the meeting taking place at the ministry office here in Phnom Penh, Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng expressed his thanks to the people and Government of Japan for their continuous support for the development of Cambodia.

The Royal Government of Cambodia, added Samdech Kralahom, has been investing heavily in building the country's human resources.

Meanwhile, the government is addressing priority issues, including illicit drug traffic and use, road accidents, and illegal fishing practices. An assessment, he continued, will be made to identify areas that need external assistance.

Mr. Ryu Shionoya said that his team will be welcoming support requests of those priorities from the Royal Government of Cambodia and mobilise appropriate resources for them.
