Cambodian PM Highly Values Youth’s Role in National Development

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has spoken highly of the key role of youth in the national development.

"The participation of youth in all national affairs is very important because they are the decision makers of their own country's destiny at present and in the future," underlined the Cambodian premier at the opening ceremony of the ASEAN Youth Forum 2016 held here this morning under the theme "Peace, Democracy, and Regional Partnership toward Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)."

All the development policies have to continue providing more room for the youth to participate and give their opinions or comments in order to strengthen the democracy and to achieve a common policy which ensures the national interests to the maximum, he said.

Samdech Techo Hun Sen also expressed his appreciation to the forum's theme and encouraged youth delegates from other countries to intensively discuss to foster solidarity, culture of peace at the national, regional and global levels.
