Vocational Skill Training Prioritised for Rural Population

Royal Government of Cambodia is increasingly investing in building capacity of people from rural communities through provision of short-and medium-term vocational training.

The endeavour was unveiled by H.E. Chan Darong, Spokesperson and Secretary of State at the Ministry of Rural Development in a press conference on the ministry's work progress here in Phnom Penh recently.

The vocational skill training for rural population is done in response to the needs of markets increasingly challenging in the country and beyond, continued the spokesperson.

According to H.E. Chan Darong, the ministry has, by far, established 12 rural training centres across the country, including the Korea's rural development centre.

Most technical skills trained to the people include community development work, animal raising, diversification of vegetable and rice plantation, family crops, food processing, soap and cosmetic production, tailoring, computer and foreign language training, vehicle and machinery repair, and beyond, said the spokesperson.

Moreover, the ministry also provided mobile training to those living in the far-flung areas.
