More Attention on Senior Citizens

Royal Government of Cambodia has been paying remarkably more attention on the country’s senior citizens.

Ministry of Economy and Finance has recently convened a discussion meeting here in Phnom Penh with other concerned government’s bodies to review Cambodia National Policy on Ageing 2017-2030.

According to Minister of Planning H.E. Chhay Than, who participated in the gathering, the update to the existing national policy was intended by the government to support the senior citizens to fit the latest and foreseen demographic trend.

Welfare of the senior citizens, he added, significantly impacted the rest of the age groups in the society as well as the country’s economy.

With this said, the government � grounding on the national policy � is investing more on ageing population which will demand collective efforts from other stakeholders accordingly.
