Siem Reap (FN), Jun. 7 – Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Manet said that JCI Asia-Pacific Conference will serve as a platform to foster enhanced cooperation and progress for the Asia-Pacific region and the global community, as part of efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goals and address the impacts of climate change.

The premier spoke during the opening ceremony of the 2024 JCI Asia-Pacific Conference at the Sokha Convention Center in Siem Reap on 6 June 2024.

"The conference will promote better cooperation and progress for the Asia-Pacific region and the world as a whole, within the context of striving to achieve sustainable development goals and mitigate the impact of climate change. The theme 'Rising Together' is fitting at a time when the world faces uncertainty due to geopolitical tensions, economic crises, climate change, and the recent outbreak of a new pandemic," the premier underscored.

On the occasion, Samdech Thipadei thanked stakeholders, including the Siem Reap Provincial Administration and particularly the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia, for their tireless cooperation and strong support in facilitating the organization of this General Assembly, which resulted in its success.

The conference will take place over three days from 6-9 June 2024, with nearly 4,000 participants from 21 countries in the region and 23 countries from various other regions.
