Students meet to tackle joblessness

With only a fragment of Cambodia's university graduates finding employment each year,

job opportunities are a burning issue among the country's youth.

Over 300 representatives from 40 universities and higher education institutions will

meet at a forum October 23 to discuss and dissect this topic. The event, "Strengthening

Employment Opportunities for Cambodia's University Graduates," is scheduled

to take place at the University of Cambodia, Phnom Penh.

Sponsored by the Youth Resources Development Program, a local NGO that promotes Cambodia's

college students, the forum will provide an overview of a number of challenges facing

today's graduates-from the country's current and future labor markets to the effect

of unemployment on Cambodia's social development.

According to a press release from YRDP, forum organizers "hope to be able to

raise some key issues and recommendations that can be used to help Government and

employers find ways to increase employment opportunities."
