Japan is going to make aid of about USD 3 million to Cambodia to improve Cambodia's education system. It is being done with a motive to ensure that students may get the chance to acquire scholarships to carry forward their studies in 2018.

The previous year, Japan contributed nearly USD 29 million in aid to Cambodia. Two new institutions for teachers training were constructed in Phnom Penh and Battambang. The main aim behind the projects has been to increase the capacity of human resources in Cambodia.

During a meeting between the foreign affairs minister Prak Sokhonn and Japanese ambassador to Cambodia Hidehisa Horinouchi, it was decided to award the grant to Cambodia.

Last year, Japan provided nearly USD 29 million in aid to Cambodia for two new institutions aimed at training teachers in Phnom Penh and the province of Battambang, with the aim of increasing the capacity of human resources in Cambodia.

A Cambodian Independent Teachers'Association adviser, Rong Chhun said: "Every year, Japan provides scholarships in Cambodia and I think that Japan is a country that believes in quality education."

He further said that Japan is focussed on helping the Cambodian education system, young Cambodians will receive training as well. However, the youth must also try to study and research to acquire new knowledge for the advancement of the country.
