Vietnam helps Cambodian NA with IT training

A graduation ceremony was held in Phnom Penh on August 26 by the Cambodian National Assembly Secretariat to present certificates in information technology to 120 trainees.

The IT training was part of a project worth 2 million USD funded by the Vietnamese National Assembly to help the Cambodian side improve its IT facilities during the 2011-2012 period.

The trainees will be sent to serve the 32nd General Assembly ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA) in September.

The project also aims to build a computer-controlled system, set up databases, increase the speed of Internet transmission and enhance office computer skills, in order to boost the operation of the Cambodian legislative body.

Addressing the ceremony, Secretary General of the Cambodian NA Leng Peng Long highlighted the traditional relations and special solidarity between the two neighbouring countries.

Vietnam assisted Cambodia to overthrow the Pol Pot regime in the past, he said, adding that Vietnam continued its support for his country during the cause of national construction and development.
