Cambodia and India were committed to strengthening their collaboration on cooperation and human resource training in the media sector.

The commitment was made during the meeting here yesterday afternoon between H.E. Neth Pheaktra, Cambodian Minister of Information and H.E. Dr. Devyani Khobragade, Indian Ambassador to Cambodia.

Both sides particularly focused on the cooperation in information dissemination between their state media institutions – between the National Television of Cambodia (TVK), National Radio of Cambodia (RNK) and Agence Kampuchea Presse (AKP) and India's national TV.

H.E. Neth Pheaktra informed his guest of some priority works of the Ministry of Information, including institutional modernisation to make the ministry a public relations institution of the Royal Government of Cambodia.

H.E. Minister also sought technical support from the Indian side for the preparation of a safe digital system in order to preserve films and photos under the management of AKP.

In reply, H.E. Dr. Devyani Khobragade pledged to discuss the request with concerned parties.

After the meeting, the Indian ambassador also visited AKP to learn about its efforts in conserving old films and photos.
