Thailand's Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn will visit Cambodia next month to boost bilateral education ties between the kingdoms, a topic she has worked on since her first visit in 1992.
Education Minister Hang Chuon Naron said yesterday the princess was due here between February 22 and 24, and is scheduled to meet King Norodom Sihamoni and Prime Minister Hun Sen.
She will also visit schools throughout the country, he said.
“The visit of Princess Sirindhorn shows the good bilateral relationship between Cambodia and Thailand, especially in the field of education,” Naron said.
The princess will provide assistance in school construction, and fund 200 scholarships for Cambodian students to study in Thailand.
She will preside over the ground-breaking ceremonies for the Kampong Speu Institute of Technology and the Kampong Chheuteal High School in Kampong Thom.
Her itinerary includes schools in Kampong Speu, Tbong Khmum and Prey Veng.
