Prime Minister Hun Sen said the meeting of the Supreme Consultative Council next week will be broadcast live to the provinces and army bases in a move to ensure work effectiveness.

Speaking to thousands of garment workers in Kandal province on Wednesday, Mr Hun Sen said he will attend a six-month meeting with SCC members on February 28 to listen to their findings and inputs.

Mr Hun Sen said that the consultation and debate among the SCC members will be broadcast live through a video conference.

“I told Deputy Prime Minister Bin Chhin to connect a video conference during the meeting to the provinces and the army bases,” he said. “By doing so, provincial authorities can respond directly to the concerns and problematic findings that the council has found.”

Mr Hun Sen noted that the video conference is to ensure work effectiveness and to receive more inputs from relevant parties.

The council is tasked with giving ideas and feedback to draft laws before the Council of Ministers approve them. It also will provide comments to the Prime Minister for any injustice or abuses by officials.

The SCC is composed of representatives of 16 political parties that contested the national election last year, in which each party has two representatives.
