PM: Don’t Underestimate Education in Cambodia

Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen this morning said that some people had studied under leaky school roofs in Cambodia, but they underestimated the quality of education here.

At the graduation ceremony of almost 7,000 students of the Cambodian University for Specialties (CUS) in Phnom Penh, Samdech Techo Hun Sen said it is true that the quality of education in Cambodia is not as high as that of some foreign nations, but the Royal Government has been working to strengthen and promote the country’s education quality and socio-economic activities.

The Premier said that he is proud for making the right decision to allow the private sector to invest in the education sector since the 1989-1990, which has created a better and easier situation for all students to continue their higher education.

Each year, he explained, some 100,000 students got their baccalaureate while state-owned universities can only receive about 10 percent of them.

If we do not allow the private sector to participate in the development of human resources, where can all the young people learn and work, Samdech Techo Prime Minister asked.
