China-ASEAN University Students Forum

By: Mr. Khun Channy

As a part of the 7th China-ASEAN Cooperation Week, Mrs. Por Malis, Vice President of Operations; Mr. Khun Channy, Associate Dean for College of Education; and Mr. Bun PengHuy, Student from College of Law, participated in the China-ASEAN University Students’ Forum in Guizhou Province, P.R. China, hosted by Guiyang Medical University, from September 1st-4th, 2014. University representatives and students from Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China were invited to attend and speak at this forum.

The objectives of the forum were to develop educational cooperation and exchanges, as well as to enhance better understanding and friendship between ASEAN nations and China. Furthermore, the forum sought to foster an exchange of opinions on educational issues concerning students and the future of HEIs.
To promote the University of Cambodia on an international stage, Mrs. Por Malis presented the profile of UC and its various activities and achievements, in addition to an overview of the in-depth reform strategies of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Students from different countries presented their topics in the forum. Particularly, Mr. Bun PengHuy, a student from the College of Law at the University of Cambodia, offered a speech about the lives of students at UC. He mainly focused on the activities and achievements of the University of Cambodia Student Senate.

Speeches offered by both Mrs. Por Malis and Mr. Bun PengHuy gained much attention from the participants and ultimately they received acknowledgement from organizers of the event.
As a result of our effort in building collaboration with universities in China, representatives from two universities—Guizhou University and Yangshou University—showed profound interest in having an MOU with the University of Cambodia.
