This strategic plan is a dynamic policy that requires regular follow-up, examination, evaluation and improvement in order to respond to the real situation in the future, said Samdech Techo Hun Sen, who is also Honorary President of the Disability Action Council of Cambodia (DAC), in a message signed in late June.
“I strongly believe that through the implementation of this strategic plan, we will get a specific solution and best experience to contribute to building the national capacities more effectively, which is our purpose to push the Cambodian society to step forward towards the elimination of all obstacles and provide opportunities for people with disabilities,” he added.
The Cambodian premier also called on the development partners, civil society organizations, non-governmental organizations, and private sector to take part actively in the implementation of the NDSP 2014-2018 in order to protect and promote the rights of people with disabilities.
This morning, Samdech Techo Hun Sen presided over the launching ceremony of NDSP 2014-2018 at Koh Pich Convention and Exhibition Center in Phnom Penh.
According to the DAC’s report, as of 2013, a total number of 1,999 people with disabilities had been employed by 40 ministries and state institutions, of them were 461 people with serious disabilities.
