Phay Siphan, Minister Attached to the Prime Minister and chairman of the Royal Government Spokesperson Unit, announced that the unit remains committed to contributing to good governance in the information sector in order to maintain peace, social stability and development.
The announcement came as he addressed the March 17 closing ceremony of a workshop held to strengthen the information mechanisms and policies of four provinces – Siem Reap, Oddar Meanchey, Kampong Thom and Preah Vihear.
The two-day workshop, held in Siem Reap, was attended by more than 200 officials from provincial authorities.
“The spokesperson unit is always working to strengthen its capacities,” said Siphan. “The success of this workshop demonstrates that commitment. We are dedicated to delivering the finest public services, from the sub-national to the national level.”
Ministry of Information spokesperson Meas Sophorn said on March 19 that the ministry had provided its full support to the workshop.
“Additional training sessions like this one are an excellent opportunity for provincial officials to expand their knowledge and gain a better understanding of the importance of their roles,” he added.
“It is also a good way to improve the cooperation between spokespeople and information officials, as well as how they communicate with the specialist officials who provide them with information,” he concluded.
