A company from India is seeking cooperation with the Labour Ministry to provide vocational skills training for out of school students in Cambodia.
Labour Minister Ith Samheng met with Rajneesh Kanotra, chief of the marketing relations department at Centum Learning, to discuss the company’s proposal.
Centum Learning has experience in developing the vocational education sector over the past seven years and it wishes to cooperate with the government to provide lower secondary school students and drop outs with skills to boost their employability.
Mr Sam Heng said he welcomed the company, and expressed wishes to establish cooperation.
He noted that Cambodia and India have had good relations since ancient times, and that today there are many demographic, religious, and customary similarities between the two peoples.
“I had reviewed the history of the company’s operation and I praise its success,” Mr Samheng said. “I express intent of cooperating with the Indian company to develop technical and vocational training in Cambodia.”
“I really want India to have a presence in the field with General Department of Technical and Vocational Education and Training,” he added.
Mr Kanotra said Centum Learning has worked to develop vocational training and skill development in India and in Africa.
He said now the company wants to do the same for the Kingdom.
