Cambodia has sought support from the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisations (AFEO) to host an ASEAN Digital Engineer Workshop in March 2023.
The initiative was proposed by H.E. Ith Samheng, Cambodian Minister of Labour and Vocational Training while receiving a courtesy visit from an AFEO delegation in Phnom Penh this morning, on the sidelines of the 40th Conference of AFEO (CAFEO-40).
The AFEO delegation voiced their support for the initiative on the organisation of the workshop aiming to better share experience and information.
Besides, H.E. Minister commended the AFEO for its contribution to the development of human resources, especially in the field of engineering. The AFEO has also contributed to setting forth a number of new strategies to respond to the rapid technological and socio-economic developments, he added.
H.E. Ith Samheng also wanted to see the AFEO play a more important role in contributing to the development of the engineering sector and the number of engineers of all ASEAN countries increase.
Cambodia is hosting the 40th Conference of the ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organisation at Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel from Dec. 5 to 8 under the theme “The Changing Roles of Engineers in Industry 4.0 Era”.
