Officials at the Justice Ministry are to be funded to learn Chinese.
Justice Minister Ang Vong Vathana and the Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Xiong Bo announced after a meeting yesterday that China will provide scholarships to enable officials to study outside their working hours.
Ministry spokesman Chin Malin said the Confucius Institute in Cambodia would provide three classes in Mandarin and another on Chinese law.
“Many Justice Ministry officials are interested in learning Chinese,” he said, adding that about 170 had already registered and could be sent to China to continue their studies after they achieve a certain level of proficiency.
“We can learn a lot from China about how to develop and reform the economy,” Mr Malin added.
The ministry is also encouraging officials to learn other languages, in particular English and French.
