The Social Affairs Minister has urged the public to study sign language in order to better communicate with those with hearing disabilities.
The government held an event Tuesday to mark International Deaf Day at the Social Affairs Ministry.
Minister Vong Soth said he wanted to promote the use of sign language in families, communities and the media.
Mr Soth said state and private television stations should display sign language interpreters for those with hearing impairments.
“I request that all stakeholders encourage the study of sign language for families, friends and colleagues, so that deaf people can communicate well in their daily activities,” he said.
