As a lawmaker, I wish to commend Daniel de Carteret and Vincent MacIsaac for reporting on the perks paid by the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) to government ministries.
GMAC needs to review its practice of responding to official letters from government ministries soliciting donations. According to the GMAC director general, these official requests “happen all the time from all ministries – bar none” and are supposedly nonpartisan in nature.

Corruption is one of the greatest challenges for Cambodia’s future political and economic development. Speaking during the first Cabinet meeting on September 26, 2013, Prime Minister Hun Sen indicated that the fight against corruption would be a top priority for the government in its fifth mandate. And the growing consensus is that corruption in the education system must be urgently addressed because it may have broader implications on efforts to tackle the problem of corruption in other government institutions.
