Hun Sen to take lead in reform program review

Prime Minister Hun Sen has announced he will preside over a review of the government’s reform program.

“[Hun Sen] announced that on January 29 he will preside over a wide-ranging meeting at the Peace Palace in order to evaluate and boost reform programs, especially economic reform and social reform,” a statement from the Council of Ministers issued Friday said.

Phay Siphan, spokesman for the Council of Ministers, said yesterday that land rights would be one of the discussion topics.

“The mechanism will reduce disputes at the local level and create more effective services for people,” he said.

Nhem Ponharith, spokesman for the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party, said the government’s talk of reforms was an attempt to distract people “amid the political stalemate”.
