Lastly, 3rd year programme is going to introduce and develop innovative packaging technology, and to consulting advanced logistics on specific areas requested by Cambodia.
This year programme, there are twenty-three (23) participants from the Ministry of Industry, Science, Technology and Innovation (MISTI) of Cambodia. Among the 23 participants, there are 1 deputy general director, 2 directors of departments, and 6 deputy directors of departments.
With a mission to support human resources development (HRD) in partner countries, KOICA works in several technical areas on various programmes and projects that substantially impact Cambodia’s development such as improving students’ nutrition and wellbeing, strengthening teacher capacity, public health, agriculture and health’s infrastructure, and innovation. Furthermore, KOICA has been dispatched more than 760 WFK volunteers and invited around 3,100 government officers to participate in short-term training and a Master’s degree programme in Korea.
The Cambodian government highly values Korea's leading role in such areas as direct investment, tourism, cultural exchange, development cooperation, vocational training, IT, construction, finance and airline business, all of which contribute to Cambodia's development process. The Republic of Korea is committed to building on these robust exchanges and cooperation to take our bilateral relationship to a higher level.
