In November, Minister of Interior Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng met with the Executive Secretary of ESCAP, Ms. Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana to discuss his country's ongoing CRVS development. During the meeting, Mr. Kheng highlighted the government's ongoing efforts on draft laws on civil registration and identification aiming to ensure that each citizen has a single identity. Samdech Kralahom Sar Kheng acknowledged that legal identity is imperative to serving the daily activities of the Cambodian people. He also noted the Cambodian CRVS system was destroyed under the Khmer Rouge regime, but that Cambodia "has been actively working on this subject and has been enforcing our 2016-2021 strategic plan on civil registration". He emphasized that civil registration is important and serves the daily living activities of the people. Insight readers can access the full article by visiting the Phnom Penh Post website here.
