H.E. Dr. Hun Manet: Peace Gives Opportunity to Students to Pursue Their Studies Abroad

H.E. Dr. Hun Manet, Head of Overseas Youth Working Group said here on Dec. 13 evening at a get-together with some 600 Cambodian students studying in Australia and New Zealand that peace allows students to continue their studies abroad.

Full peace, freedom and development give us chances to pursue our studies overseas, he underlined. The Royal Government of Cambodia will continue to support as well as find more scholarships for us.

Cambodian students are not present only in Australia and New Zealand, but also in many other countries around the world including Asia, Europe and the U.S. which have good cooperation with the Cambodian government, he said, recommending the scholarship students to study hard for themselves and for the country and share their knowledge and experience to help building Cambodia.

Studying abroad surely has many problems, but we must struggle hard to achieve our goal, he stressed.

On the occasion, H.E. Kim Santepheap, head of youth working group for Australia and New Zealand encouraged all students to contact the working team in Phnom Penh City and the 12 cities in Australia and New Zealand at anytime if the students face any problems during their study, by doing so the team will try to help solving as much as they can.

For his part, H.E. Souny Vongvisiddh, Head of Student Support Team for Students learning in Australia and New Zealand said that this 4th annual gathering in Phnom Penh aimed to gather the students who have graduated, are studying and are going to study in both countries in order to share experience, building relations as well as to help solving any study and living related issues of the students.
