PM says veterans will get their land

Prime Minister Hun Sen has asked Land Minister Chea Sophara and the Cambodia Veterans Association to make a success of the social land concession scheme for men and women who have served the nation.
 

Speaking at the 10th Anniversary of Cambodian Veterans Day at Koh Pich, attended by more than two thousand veterans, the prime minister urged Mr Sophara and CVA secretary-general Kun Kim to ensure veterans get the land they deserve.
 

The government has built several hundred homes for disabled and retired army and police veterans, but many are still waiting for extra land they were promised beside their homes.
 

Some were promised small plots of farmland to enable them to supplement their pensions by cultivating cash crops. ‎However, the plots have yet to materialise.
 

“I am organising the provision of farmland to go alongside social land concessions for our veterans in the provinces,” Mr Hun Sen said. “We have to make sure the land is given directly to them.”
