SMART Axiata and UNESCO inked an agreement on Tuesday, August 16, under the watchful eye of Hang Chuon Naron, the minister of Education, Youth and Sport to formalise their official long-term partnership to cooperate and implement common projects towards the advancement of quality education in Cambodia.
They said signing a memorandum of understanding was a major milestone between the two parties to reaffirm the commitment and passion they have towards being a key partner with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport in developing education in Cambodia. The collaboration involves developing and implementing joint programs to strengthen and support ongoing initiatives in the field of local education, especially in the research and development of ICT based education, promotion of literacy as well as development of digital content for basic education. “Building on our existing partnership, we are combining both our expertise – frontline telecommunications technology and globally recognised education capabilities – to make a difference for the Cambodian community,” said Thomas Hundt, chief executive officer of Smart Axiata.
