New perspective on German-Cambodia diplomatic relationship has been developed today as the German Ambassador, Dr. Ingo Karsten, and the University of Cambodia inaugurated a “Germany Room” at the University.
The new Room is decorated with pictures about Germany and will be used as a classroom as well as for social events related to Germany. After the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the “Germany Room”, the German Ambassador delivered a speech on the topic: “50 years of cooperation between Germany and Cambodia”. More than 200 students, faculty members and the senior management of the university were listening. In his talk, the German ambassador highlighted key achievements between the two countries and gave in-depth information about the German Development Cooperation in Cambodia.
After his presentation, students and faculty members were interested to find out more about German scholarships of the DAAD as well as the German government perspective on the recent developments in Cambodia.
The German Embassy in Phnom Penh has also donated a set of books about Germany to the University of Cambodia.
