Ladies and Gentlemen

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.

Education is one of the key preconditions for development.  A heavy historical burden has left huge gaps in the educational capacities of the Cambodian population but also in the educational system itself.   The low quality of education services and corruptions including bribe and cheating  are among crucial obstacles to the improvement of education in Cambodia.  If there is any place to promote social accountability in Cambodia, it is in education such that social accountability could and should be found within the education sector.

You all are playing an important role in promoting land reform and the sustainable management and protection of Cambodia’s environment.  It is only through our combined and coordinated efforts that we can ensure a better future for millions of Cambodians.

The U.S. government, through President Obama’s global food security initiative known as “Feed the Future,” strives to increase agricultural production, incomes, nutrition, and the resiliency of rural households.  I am very pleased to inform you all that Cambodia was one of nineteen countries in the world selected to participate in this initiative. 

Sean Callahan, USAID Cambodia Deputy Mission Director speaks at National Consultative Workshop on Strengthening Health Professio
October 14, 2014

Of the many challenges we face as a global community – and there are many – health crises constitute among the most serious.  Today, the headlines tell us of the toll that Ebola has taken in West Africa.  Not long ago the world faced repeated outbreaks of SARS, multiple influenzas, not to mention the continued threat posed by HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, dengue, measles – I could go on. But I won’t.  What I do want to point out is that our single greatest defense against these threats is our health workers.  These men and women fight on the front lines every day at great risk to themselves to protect us.  Helping them to become a coordinated, disciplined, qualified, and effective fighting force is what this gathering is all about.

Cambodia Country Development Cooperation Strategy 2014-2018

September 25, 2014

Cambodia, a country of just over 15 million people in Southeast Asia, has made great progress after 20 years of rebuilding from decades of civil war, enjoying steady economic growth rates over the recent decade and significant improvements in quality of life. Having once had the region’s highest HIV rate, Cambodia cut its prevalence rate in half from 1998 to 2010 and has made incredible advances in education and the fight to save infant and mothers’ lives.
