Youth development is a priority in national development and peacebuilding


Tboung Khmum Governor Cheam Chan Sophorn said youth development is a priority in national development and peacebuilding.

The Governor made the statement yesterday while presiding over the celebration of the 23rd anniversary of International Youth Day. The ceremony took place in Kak commune, Ponhea Krek district, Tboung Khmum.

Sophorn said youth development is a priority in national development and peacebuilding because youth are the “bamboo shoots” that need to be developed both physically, intellectually and mentally to contribute to the development of a glorious nation.

He urged the youth to be proud of the nation and strive to develop their abilities and participate in social work. Cambodian youth is the key and most valuable resource for participation in economic, social, cultural and environmental development and an important driving force for sustaining national economic growth.

The Governor also encouraged students to study hard, obey traffic laws, love the environment and stay away from drugs.
