PM says join hands to boost digitalisation

Prime Minister Hun Manet has urged ministries, institutions and

educationists to increase the cooperation for digitalization which he said will help Cambodia’s development needs and its transition to a digital economy and government.

The Prime Minister made the remarks at the inauguration of the National University of Management’s new campus at Sangkat Veal Sbov in Phnom Penh’s Khan Chbar Ampov yesterday.

“The government is paying close attention to the development of the national economy through the digital revolution. At the same time, higher education is also an important part of developing human resources with the high capacity to participate in the development of the national economy in this new era,” the Prime Minister said.

The premier also sought to focus on green economic development, an indispensable part of supporting sustainable socio-economic development through cooperation in building green infrastructure and making energy transition.

“During this Seventh Mandate, all government ministries and institutions must establish digital transformation units to keep up to date with the digital age in line with the government’s digital policy,” the premier said.

The Cambodian government has introduced a series of policies such as the Cambodia Digital Economy and Society Policy Framework 2021-2023, the Cambodia Digital Government Policy 2022-2035, the Pentagonal Strategy Phase One and the Cambodia Financial Technology Development Policy 2023-2028.

The objective of these policies is to build a digital economy to become both a new growth driver, as well as an ecosystem to contribute to increasing productivity and efficiency and improve the welfare of the people.

As a nation with a young dynamic population and a burgeoning tech-savvy workforce, Cambodia is well-positioned to leverage the digital economy to its advantage, the premier said at an international forum in China late last year.

On that occasion, Mr Hun Manet welcomed key partners, both from the public and private sectors, to explore the opportunities that Cambodia offers in the field of digital economy.

The initiatives are to support Cambodia’s mission to become a high-middle-income country by 2030 and a high-income country by 2050.
