Honda Y-E-S Award 2008 in Cambodia Award Ceremony Highlights

Four Excellent Students Received the First Y-E-S Award in Cambodia

The award ceremony for the 1st Y-E-S Award in Cambodia took place at CJCC in Phnom Penh on December 25, 2008. Based on the performance records, interviews, and essays, a total of four most brilliant students were chosen from the applications from the science and engineering schools of the two affiliated Cambodian universities.
In his congratulatory remarks, Secretary of State for Education H.E. Pit Chamnan acknowledged: “Having made a miraculous postwar reconstruction, Japan is a mentor for us. I was very moved at the moment I heard a foundation from that country would help us through a grant prize. It would become a great encouragement to our students.” Probably reflecting the mounting expectations in the country, greater-than-expected 350 guests gathered, including the government officials, the families and friends of the awardees.

I would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to the first awardees of the YES Award in Cambodia. Our country is about to mark the 30th anniversary of Independence Day. The second birthday to us, this day is important. At the same time we wish for our sound economic growth, we must pledge to continue a no-guerrilla society. The awardees and other students present here have not experienced wars; but you should first learn about the wars Cambodia experienced through in the past, and then study hard for the Cambodian people. Now is the time: You can change the country if you want to do so. I hope you not only learn Japan’s science and technology but also emulate its high work ethic for your future contributions to the development of Cambodia.
