Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 2 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen requested Phnom Penh governor and the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports to work together to find more new dormitories for poor students from the provinces, especially females, as well as foreign students to stay in order to continue their education.

The premier spoke during a meeting with more than 1,000 students, who received Grade A from the examination, on Thursday morning (Feb 2) at OCIC, Phnom Penh.

“We will soon accept more local and foreign students, so I would like to ask the governor to examine the possibility of using some of our land to build a dormitory for our poor students, especially females,” the premier underlined.

Samdech added, the current problem is the lack of accommodation for poor students, especially females, so we need more dormitories that hold approximately 200 to 300 beds for them to stay to pursue their education.

At the same time, Samdech also instructed the governor and the education ministry to study and inspect the land in the suburbs next to the national stadium for building the dormitory.
