Graduates in Economics

Twenty-three civil servants were awarded masters of science in financial economics

degrees from the University of London at a ceremony on June 12 at the Cambodian Development

Resource Institute (CDRI).

The graduates were the first in a special program designed by CDRI and supported

by SIDA whereby selected students were released half time from their workplace to

participate in studies conducted at CDRI. Students were supported by tutors with

texts and support materials sent to Cambodia from the University of London. The aim

of the program was to keep talented civil servants on the job while strengthening

their skills and knowledge through advanced studies.

Program participants came from the ministries of finance, planning, commerce, and

agriculture; the Council for the Development of Cambodia; the national bank; and

CDRI.
