Dropout Prevention Pilot Program Findings and Policy Dialogue Workshop
July 1, 2015

Your Excellency Im Koch, Secretary of State, Ministry of Education Youth and Sport

Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen

It is my great pleasure to welcome all of you today to this workshop.  Giving every Cambodian child the opportunity to complete their education and reduce the number who dropout is a priority for the country.  Education is a pathway to better opportunities for every person, their community, and their nation.  That is why USAID is an important supporter of education programs around the world.  

Through SDPP, we work closely with the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport to achieve Cambodia’s Millennium Development Goal of  Universal Access to Basic Education by 2015.  We work together to increase the number of children that are able to receive quality education.  One of the key ways we do that is to help Cambodia spread the use of information communication technology – or ICT – to all levels of the school system with a particular emphasis on secondary schools.

It is my great pleasure to see all of you here today for the “Launch of the Prey Lang Landscape Biodiversity Assessment Report.” Protecting Cambodia’s natural resources is a priority for the U.S. government and we are proud to have supported this important initiative.

USAID works closely with the Cambodian government to preserve and sustainably manage its forests and rich biodiversity. Our Supporting Forests and Biodiversity Project, which funds this Biodiversity Assessment, is one of the main ways that we do this.

Cambodia, a country of just over 15 million people in Southeast Asia, has spent the last 20 years rebuilding from decades of civil war. The country has made great progress, enjoying steady economic growth rates over the recent decade and significant improvements in quality of life. Having once had the region’s highest HIV rate, Cambodia cut its prevalence rate in half from 1998 to 2010 and has made incredible advances in its fight against tuberculosis and infant deaths.
