The month-long China Mobile Science and Technology Museum International Tour Exhibition opened in the capital yesterday to showcase scientific and high-tech innovations to the public, especially youths.
The exhibition is organised by the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia in cooperation with China Science and Technology Museum and about 1,000 students participated in the opening ceremony yesterday and visited the exhibition site at UYFC headquarters.
Kim Rithy, UYFC vice president, yesterday urged youths to study innovations in science and technology, which the Kingdom needs, to secure high income jobs.
“The UYFC is focusing on and giving priority to science and technology in order to help all brothers and sisters [students and youths] to earn high incomes in the future,” he said. “All the items on display are the result of theories we study in schools which have been put into practice.”
Mr Rithy added that students can gain a lot of knowledge about the advances in science and technology by visiting the exhibition.
Chen Jian, CSTM deputy director and Associate Research Fellow, said yesterday that he is very happy that both countries are working together to promote cooperation in the fields of science and technology.
He said that the mobile museum was established in 2010 by the China Association for Science and Technology.
Mr Jian linked the exhibition to China’s One Belt One Road Initiative and said the exhibition will further enhance cooperation, understanding, and mutual trust with Cambodia as well as promote joint science and technology development with Cambodia.
According to a report by the UYFC, this is the first time the exhibition is being held in the Kingdom, and there are 60 exhibits showcasing high-tech innovations, including intelligent robots.
The exhibition will be open for a month in the capital before moving to other provinces in the Kingdom until 2021.
Ngoun Lyhoung, a student from Beltei International School, yesterday expressed her satisfaction after visiting the exhibition.
“I am happy when I see many scientific and high-tech items from China, and I want our country to also produce our own innovations,” she said. “I hope that we the younger generation can have the capacity to make these technological innovations like China.”
