Body formed to look into isssues of elderly

SOCIAL Affairs Minister Ith Somheng would lead a group of 17 legislators tasked with creating social policy for Cambodia’s growing elderly population, as part of the newly formed National Committee for the Elderly, the government announced yesterday.. Prime Minister Hun Sen appointed himself as honorary president and two secretaries of state within the Ministry of Social Affairs – Muth Kiev and Nuth Saan as vice-presidents of the committee. Kim Vuthy, director of the Cambodia Retirement Village, said the committee was evidence that the elderly “will not be hopeless in life because the government is paying attention to them”.
