‘Gov’t achievements’ report archived

A report on government achievements in the last five years has been jointly compiled by the Council of Ministers, ministries, institutions and provincial administrations, who announced their plan to archive it as a historical document.

The over 500-page report covers the activities and efforts that the government had undertaken to overcome key obstacles and challenges, especially those posed by the Covid-19 crisis, which had severely affected both the Cambodian and global economy.

“Under the… leadership of Prime Minister Hun Sen and his capacity and ability to control the Covid-19 crisis, Cambodia has been able to keep afloat,” the report said.

It noted the government’s Rectangular Strategy Phase IV, implemented between 2018 and 2023, focuses on the acceleration of several key socio-economic areas, notably human resource development, digital economy and sustainable and inclusive development.

“Human resources development has been made the top priority in all phases of the rectangular strategy in order to upgrade knowledge, skills, capacity, entrepreneurship, innovation… and the role of women,” the report said.

It also revealed that the number of schools across the board had increased in the last five years, in order to increase the proximity of the institutions to the Cambodian population per the government’s recommendation.

The report also said that the pandemic had demonstrated Cambodia’s readiness to respond to Covid-19 through deployment of the Platforms for Real-Time Information Systems (PRISM) in the public health sector, notably in hospitals, health centres and in sustaining health services.
