Ladies and gentlemen

Good Afternoon on behalf of U.S. people

I am honored to be here this afternoon in recognition of Cambodia’s National Day against Trafficking.  I would like to recognize the Provincial Committee to Combat Human Trafficking who have worked closely with our partner – Winrock International – to make this event a reality.  Too many Cambodians continue to be pushed into situations where they are easily exploited or trafficked.   We need to recommit our collective energy to ensure those situations are a thing of the past.

There is still more work to be done in every country, including the United States, to put an end to human trafficking.  That is why we will continue to support efforts by the Royal Government of Cambodia and civil society to increase efforts to combat all forms of human trafficking.  We will also assist survivors to continue beyond their suffering and move forward with their lives.

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.

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.
