EU funds civil servant training

THE European Union is to fund a 1,400,000 euro (US$1.3m) training program for

officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other ministries against the

background of Cambodia's membership of ASEAN, according to a press

release.

The aim of the 15-month program is to equip 100 senior and

medium-level government officials with the skills necessary to meet the

challenges that arise from Cambodia's recently joining Asean and the increased

role the nation is playing on the regional stage.

Starting in August

1999, specific objectives of the program include the provision of policy-level

training in matters relating to Asean, and the teaching of practical skills

concerned with foreign affairs. The skills training will be tailored to the

level and abilities of staff.
