AKP Phnom Penh, November 28, 2018 --
Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, has encouraged the youths to continue their contribution in maintaining peace and political stability in the country.
“At any costs, we have to prevent the colour revolution in Cambodia,” he underlined here yesterday afternoon while presiding over the closing ceremony of the 4th Congress of the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia.
The current world situation is very complex, said Samdech Techo Hun Sen, stressing that Cambodia has to be in peace and everyone must contribute to ensuring peace.
“In order to achieve our goal of becoming an upper middle-income economy by 2030 and a high-income nation in 2050, we must do our best to maintain the country’s annual economic growth at around 7 percent. Therefore, what the youths have to do is to take part in protecting peace and stability on the one hand and to boosting socio-economic development on the other hand,” he added.
UYFC organised here on Nov. 26-27 its 4th Congress with the participation of some 1,300 members of UYFC from across the country to review the UYFC’s work achievements from 2012 to 2018 and set forth new work direction for 2018-2023, as well as to elect members of the Central Committee and approve the amendment to UYFC’s statute.
The Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia is a front of Cambodian youths that continued the mission of the United Youth Association of National Salvation of Kampuchea and Cambodian Youth Association founded on Dec. 2, 1978 with the main aim of gathering all youths as a solidarity force to contribute to building Cambodia with independence, peace, freedom, democracy and social progress.
