State, World Bank sign education agreement

THE government has signed a US$23 million agreement with the World Bank to strengthen Cambodia’s higher education sector, officials said. In a statement yesterday, the World Bank said the Higher Education Quality and Capacity Improvement Project would aim to “improve the quality of teaching, management and research capacity” and provide scholarships to disadvantaged students. “Quality in higher education is one of the key issues to build the country’s human capital, which is crucial for sustainable development and poverty reduction,” the statement quoted World Bank country director Annette Dixon as saying.
