Congratulations message on 111th international Women’s Day
On International Women’s Day, March 8, 2022, the Royal Embassy of Cambodia to the United States is honored to join the rest of the world to congratulate all Cambodian women in Cambodia and Khmer-American women, and all women in the world on their achievements, contributions, and progress.
As a country that had its first ruler was a woman, Cambodia culturally and politically places women on the top priority to empower and value. Cambodia has been carrying out this great tradition since the early history of this beautiful nation.
In modern times, for their motherland, Cambodian women along with their men restlessly worked hand to hand to fight for national independence, to end the bloody civil war, to sustain peace and stability, and to develop their country. Their selfless roles set great examples and are written down in this nation’s history. Moreover, Cambodian women have contributed to world peace and development by joining UN Peacekeeping Force stationed in war zones across the globe, risking their lives for humanitarian works. Cambodia ranks 17th out of 122 countries for the number of women sent on UN peacekeeping missions.
The Royal Government of Cambodia under the wise leadership of Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has paid great attention to women’s roles by initiating various inclusive policies and frameworks to empower women in order to expand their roles in society. Despite persistent socio-economic obstacles and pandemics, the efforts by the Royal Government produce gradual improvements and favorable results in almost all working areas. With concrete evidence, in 2021, Cambodia ranks 46 in women’s economic participation and opportunities among 156 countries. Women’s socio-economic gains are not severely hampered by the pandemic outbreak due to the minimum economic disruption and early vaccination.
On the auspicious occasion of 111th Women international Day, the Royal Embassy of Cambodia to the United State would like to extend its warmest congratulations to all Cambodian women home and abroad alike for their opportunities and contributions in building their personal capacity, rebuilding Cambodia, preserving peace and stability and contributing to world peace.
Happy Women’s Day to ALL!
