Remarks by USAID Cambodia Mission Director Rebecca Black at US-ASEAN Business Alliance Workshop
January 30, 2015

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises are the backbone of almost all economies in the world. Their essential contribution to sustained and broad-based development has become even more indispensable in the regional and global economy of today. This is particularly the case in ASEAN, with each member nation having between 52 and 97 percent of its domestic employment within the SME sector. Here in Cambodia, a recent report from the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia puts SME employment at 73 percent of the domestic work force.

More than 125 small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) entrepreneurs attended a one-day workshop in Phnom Penh today to enhance their knowledge and skills on good business practices presented by U.S. multi-national companies.

Sponsored by the US-ASEAN Business Alliance for Competitive SMEs, a partnership between the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the US-ASEAN Business Council (US-ABC), the workshop included training in good business, financial and legal practices, and solutions including e-commerce and logistic tools to help improve the competitiveness of the participating firms.

NGO Education Partnership for Promoting Accountability in Education
December 16, 2014

On behalf of the American people, thank you for allowing me to make brief remarks. A fundamental principle in democracy is that citizens have the right to demand accountability and that the government at all levels from the commune council to the national level including the Ministry of Education have an obligation to be accountable. Each and every appointed and elected official and civil servants are accountable for their conduct and performance.
