PM Wants a UK University to Open in Cambodia

PHNOM PENH: Prime Minister Hun Sen met with the outgoing British Ambassador to Cambodia, Tina Redshaw, at the Peace Palace on Monday afternoon, 22 August, as she nears the end of her mission and will soon bid farewell to the Kingdom.

Prime Minister Hun Sen thanked the outgoing British Ambassador for her work in Cambodia, which has contributed to Cambodia and the United Kingdom building good relations. He also expressed his desire to have a school from the United Kingdom open in Cambodia.

During the farewell meeting, Ambassador Redshaw thanked the Royal Government of Cambodia for the success of her work as the British Ambassador to Cambodia. Through Cambodia's economic momentum and leadership, she said she is confident that Cambodia will be successful in achieving sustainable development.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said that the relations between Cambodia and the United Kingdom had improved during Ambassador Redshaw’s tenure. In particular, he observed the trend that many Cambodian students went to study in the United Kingdom, so he encouraged the United Kingdom to open a school or university in Cambodia in the future.

Tina Redshaw became the first female British Ambassador to Cambodia in July 2018. She has been described as a passionate advocate for gender equality and someone who believes in enabling girls and young women to grow up with self-esteem and the power to shape the world around them.
