Minister of Education, Youth and Sport Hang Chuon Naron addressed an international conference on digital transformation in Cambodia.

The conference aimed to raise awareness and seek input and contributions into the digital transformation of Cambodia, widely seen as necessary to ensure the Kingdom will remain competitive, both regionally and globally.

Addressing the virtual conference on October 28, Chuon Naron said that the conference marked a solid start to the transformation, by providing an opportunity for people in the public and private sectors to meet. The conference was part of promoting digital transformation skills in support of digital transformation projects in the region.

“The Covid-19 crisis has driven positive changes in digital transformation in Cambodia. We have formed a digital government, conducted electronic trade, and strengthened and promoted digital education. The Kingdom has the opportunity to capitalise on digitalisation,” he added.

An education ministry social media post read that the conference had brought together 230 participants, including delegates and representatives from government and private institutions, the Trade Association and people relevant to human resource development and digital transformation.
