Cambodian PM Shares Lesson Learnt of Successful Win-Win Policy
AKP Phnom Penh, November 19, 2019 --
Win-Win Policy, the most successful peace building theory of Cambodia, has been shared by Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen at the 2nd Asia-Pacific Summit 2019 hosted by the Kingdom.
Speaking at the APS 2019’s inaugural ceremony in Phnom Penh this morning, Samdech Techo Hun Sen said the “Win-Win Policy” had been launched to all relevant parties in order to end the prolonged war, find peace and unification in Cambodia.
According to the Premier, this policy has three priority conditions: (1) To ensure that all people can continue to survive, (2) To ensure that all people have works and jobs to support their living, (3) To ensure the protection of their property.
"The successful implementation of this ‘Win-Win Policy’ has completely ended the prolonged war in Cambodia and brought full peace as well as national unity and full territory sovereignty at the end of 1998. This is the peace and national unification, achieved by Cambodia ourselves with no harm, weapons, ammunition and commands or support from other countries," he underlined.
Thanks to full peace, he added, Cambodia has progressively developed in all sectors with the average growth rate of approximately 7.7 percent, and achieved the historical milestone, which is the transition from low income country into the lower middle-income country in 2015. The poverty rate has declined from 53.2 percent in 2004 to lower than 10 percent in 2019. Currently, Cambodia has been making more efforts to become an uppermiddle-income country by 2030 and high income country by 2050.
With complete peace and development in all sectors, Cambodian people have enjoyed the fruitfulness and employment opportunities to promote and improve their family livelihood, especially improving the education and health sectors, said the Prime Minister, stressing that presently, Cambodia also contributes actively in maintaining global peace through the dispatch of the peace-keeping forces and de-mining teams to various countries in the world under the umbrella of the United Nations.
