The Royal Government of Cambodia will coordinate so that the civil servants and armed forces can get their monthly salaries before the Khmer Traditional New Year to take place this year from Apr. 13 to 16.
The commitment was made by Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen at a graduation ceremony of the National Institute of Education, in Phnom Penh this morning.
In March, the civil servants and armed forces will be get paid before the end of the month as usual, but in the middle of the month for April in order to support their expense during the Khmer Traditional New Year, and after that, the government will do its best so that the May salaries could be given to them earlier than usual, he said.
Samdech Techo Hun Sen took this opportunity to call on the economists to pay attention to too much flow of Riel (Cambodian currency) into the market, and to reconfirm the pay rise for civil servants which will enter into force in April as well.
The Cambodian premier also sought people's understanding over the country's management, stressing that being a leader is not easy and a leader cannot just promise.
