PHNOM PENH: Korea International Cooperation Agency, known as KOICA in short, in cooperation with Ministry of Education, Youth and sport will organize the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of a Human Resources Development (HRD) Center at Royal University of Phnom Penh in the morning of December 22, 2011.

The ceremony will be highly co-presided over by H.E. Im Sethy, Minister Education, Youth and Sport and H.E. Chang Ho-Jin, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Cambodia.

The event represents the kickoff of the construction of the HRD which was planned to be completed by February 2013, and followed by 2-year operation phase until 2014 with the total budget of 7.45 million USD. This project was requested by Royal Government of Cambodia to the Government of the Republic of Korea through KOICA Cambodia Office to [1] strengthen capacity building for human resources development in Cambodia, [2] provide human resources development programs in order to reinforce the professional knowledge of professors and students at the Royal University of Phnom Penh, and [3] improve the capacity of government officials and teachers and instructors of relevant organizations.

According to the HRC Center construction plan, the building will consist of 3 floors including the ground floor for parking, one library, 2 seminar room, one multi-purpose hall with 456 seats, 7 lecture room, 3 computer labs, one language lab, and certain rooms for lecturers and administration works.

When the construction finishes, the HRD center to be named Cambodia-Korea Cooperation Center will play very important role in providing a unique education to RUPP’s students as well as the public in the part that will be a complement to what RUPP cannot provide. As initially informed by the Project Management and Consulting, the center will be providing practical training with the support from Korea on certain core subjects like Information Technology, Korean language, and     Korean culture. Moreover, there could be other training courses like Business Administration and Public Administration depending on the demand and the capacity of RUPP.

Be noted that Cambodia is one of KOICA’s core partner countries in term of development cooperation. KOICA has been providing Cambodia with different type of aids like projects supports, training programs, and volunteer programs. The scope of development cooperation has been continuously increasing year by year.  As we can see, by 2011, the amount of grant aid to Cambodia was around $82 million, including 34 projects, 1,853 trainees invited to Korea, and 296 Korean volunteers were dispatched to Cambodia.
