THE Ministry of Tourism aimed to improve human resources in the Kingdom’s tourism sector through a partnership with the National Polytechnic Institute of Cambodia, Tourism Minister Thong Khon said yesterday. The university operates a tourism undergraduate degree, which the ministry aims to co-operate with to improve the skills of the Kingdom’s tourism professionals. Thong Khon noted a lack of quality tourism workers.
NPIC graduates had a high likelihood of finding employment in the tourism sector, chairman Pich Sophoan said at the ceremony. “We have 104 students graduating from the [programme], with 90 percent getting tourism jobs,“ he said.
