Samdech Sar Kheng Presides over the 13th NCDD Meeting

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng chaired the 13th National Committee for Sub-National Democratic Development (NCDD) Meeting at the ministry office, Phnom Penh on Jan. 4.

The approval of draft minutes of the 12th NCDD Meeting, the discussion and approval of action plan and budget 2017 of NCDD were among the key points on agenda.

According to Samdech Sar Kheng, the National Programme for Sub-National Democratic Development has been implemented for six years. Even though a mid-term review shows positive change in sub-national administration management system, challenges remain, he added.

Taking the opportunity, Samdech Sar Kheng requested the Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to cooperate in organising a meeting to review the work results and challenges in carrying out the directive on measures to strengthen natural resource management approved by the Royal Government of Cambodia on Sep. 22, 2016.
