Officials Trained To Record Cultural Diversity Promotion Work

AKP Phnom Penh, March 31, 2016 —

Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts in association with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) organized a session early this week at Sunway Hotel here in Phnom Penh to capacitate concerned officials to periodically report on culture preservation work.

According to Secretary of State for Culture and Fine Arts H.E. Samrang Kamsan, this is part of the effort to ensure harmonization of cultures toward peaceful living, which is a compliance with the United Nations Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

Royal Government of Cambodia ratified the convention in September 2007.

While thanking UNESCO for its vital on-going support, the secretary of state encouraged joint effort of government bodies, civil society organizations, private sector as well as individuals to treasure the cultural diversity.
