In his speech, the German Ambassador congratulated the Cambodian Government in achieving significant steps towards sustainable economic development. The German Ambassador also shared his view with the Cambodian government why National Health Insurance Law initiated by Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck in 1883 was essential for both working class and German Society and that even now it is still high on the agenda as Germany is in election mood. While Cambodia is starting to develop its own social protection policy, the German Ambassador hoped that Germany’s and ASEAN´s experience can be served as a learning platform for the Royal Government of Cambodia. Please find the full speech of the German Ambassador here below:
