Hun Sen instructs ministries to promote 4th national TVET day

Prime Minister Hun Sen advised ministries to organise a campaign to promote national day of technical and vocational education and training (TVET) to encourage people to develop skills with higher incomes.

The government has designated June 15 as TVET day to promote a skilled and efficient labour force to meet the needs of business and industry, both domestically and internationally.

This year’s 4th TVET day is held under the theme TVET Improves Skills and Higher Income.

In a circular to mark the day published on May 18, Hun Sen instructed the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training to produce video and hardcopy content and to cooperate with relevant ministries, sub-national authorities, and other partners to disseminate the information nationwide.

“[Everbody] must cooperate, support and disseminate [information] by all means to celebrate the 4th National Day of TVET 2021,” Hun Sen said in the circular.

The prime minister directed the Ministry of Information to instruct the media in publishing his messages, videos and other documents on the occasion of the national day.

Hun Sen called on all stakeholders to solemnly promote this national day and celebrate it nationwide.

Ministry of Information spokesmen Meas Sophorn and Phos Sovann could not be reached for comment on May 18.

In August 2020, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation signed a contract with the Ministry of Labour to support a project to establish a distance-learning or online training system for TVET to assist Cambodian youth during Covid-19 and in the future.

This project will run for 10 months from August 2020 to May 2021.
