SDC Admires Cambodia for Poverty Alleviation

Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) has appreciated the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC)’s efforts in reducing poverty and maintaining the growth rate at around 7 percent for a long-term period.

The appreciation was made by visiting Mr. Thomas Greminger, Head of South Cooperation Department of SDC, while paying a courtesy visit to Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, at the ministry’s office on Feb. 1.

On the occasion, Samdech Sar Kheng highly valued the active contribution of the Swiss government in the development of Cambodia, especially in the decentralisation and deconcentralisation reforms, thus considering Switzerland as a good development partner of Cambodia.

On the same day, Mr. Thomas Greminger also held talks with Cambodian Senior Minister and Minister of Economy and Finance H.E. Aun Porn Moniroth, during which both sides expressed their satisfaction with the cooperation between the two countries.
