Phnom Penh (FN), Jun. 13 – Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Manet stated that for the nation to prosper, it requires vibrant human resources. Without active human resources, the country will inevitably fall behind compared to others.

The premier spoke on Thursday (Jun. 13) during a graduation ceremony for 540 students of Limkokwing University in Phnom Penh.

"A computer system, no matter how advanced, remains stagnant without human intervention to update its software. Similarly, our country must continuously evolve with dynamic human resources. If we stagnate, we risk falling behind neighbouring countries,” the premier underlined.

In the current era of digital AI, the world is advancing rapidly. Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet added that Cambodia must prepare training programs to keep pace with digital and AI advancements; otherwise, it risks lagging behind. To address this, the Royal Government, through the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, has collaborated with numerous private sectors to implement training initiatives.

On the occasion, Samdech Thipadei underlined that investing in human resources helps bridge the development gap with other countries. He expressed pride in the capabilities of Cambodian youth to achieve significant milestones independently.

Prime Minister Hun Manet also affirmed that the Royal Government has created opportunities for both domestic and foreign private sectors to invest in the education sector. He encouraged private sector involvement in collaboration with the Ministry of Education to enhance the quality of education.
