Norwegian Royal visit

Crown Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway visited Cambodia from Oct 4 to 6 in his capacity

as the UNDP Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Goodwill Ambassador.

Prince Magnus was attempting to raise awareness about MDGs, the most notable of which

is to halve poverty by 2015.

"I'm seeing a global vision that's gaining momentum," said the prince at

a reception held in his honor at the National Museum on Oct 5. "Reaching these

goals is our shared responsibility."

Magnus met with Prime Minister Hun Sen, Assembly head Norodom Ranariddh, women parliamentarians,

garment factory workers and visited the Tuol Sleng Museum during his stay in the

Kingdom.
