Phnom Penh (FN), Jun. 17 – Chea Vandeth, Cambodia’s Minister of Post and Telecommunications, believes that higher education with a strong international foundation is playing an even more important role in Cambodia’s economic growth.
Combining rich and vibrant Cambodian culture with the global outlook, the hybrid education model as exemplified by American University of Phnom Penh, which he founded in 2013, can push the boundaries of learning to help students grow and think more critically to answer the pressing needs in the Cambodian society.
“We will facilitate the adoption of technology in education, the business community, NGOs, and households. We will also ensure good governance in the technology sector by developing effective policies and regulatory frameworks, together with the development of ICT human capital,” Vandate stated.
Chea Vandeth shares how his time at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore helped him cultivate strong leadership to create social impact in his home country of Cambodia.
