In a significant move that reinforces the strong ties between Indonesia and Cambodia, the local Indonesian Embassy, along with community members, have successfully concluded the restoration of the Indonesia-Cambodia Friendship Primary and Secondary School located in Prey Veng Province. This collaboration aligns with the celebrations marking the 65th anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between the two nations as well as the 79th anniversary of Indonesian independence.

The re-inauguration event of the refurbished educational institution was ceremoniously conducted on July 6, 2024. Among the distinguished attendees were Santo Darmosumarto, Indonesian Ambassador to Cambodia, Suon Somalin, Governor of Prey Veng Province, and Tonn Sa Im, Under Secretary of State of the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports. Contributors to the restoration, including members of the Indonesian community and representatives from Indonesian corporations, were also in attendance.

The substantial renovation, with a budget exceeding USD 34,000, saw significant improvements to the school’s infrastructure. Upgrades included new educational and laboratory supplies, furniture, restroom facilities, a reading area, and a fresh entryway for the school. Anchored by generous donations from the staff of the Embassy and the nearly 100,000 members of the Indonesian community in Cambodia, these enhancements aim to foster a conducive learning environment.

Ambassador Santo Darmosumarto highlighted the collective participation as a reflection of the sustained friendship and goodwill shared between both countries. Initially constructed in 1995 through the financial support of the Indonesian government, the school now caters to over 790 students, from kindergarten up to the secondary level.

Arik Mintorogo, the Indonesian Community Association Chairman in Cambodia, expressed his community’s pride in contributing to this project. He reiterated that revamping the educational facility not only improves learning conditions for the students but also fortifies the relationship between Indonesians and the Cambodian community they call their second home.

Ambassador Santo reaffirmed the dedication of the Indonesian Embassy and the expatriate community towards improving the school’s standards. Investing in these students, he emphasized, is pivotal as they are the bearers of future Indonesia-Cambodia partnership prospects.

The establishment of the diplomatic link between Indonesia and Cambodia dates back to 1959 with the ceremonial signing of a Friendship Treaty. Indonesia anticipates celebrating its 79th day of independence on August 17, 2024, marking yet another milestone in the context of its global relationships and its enduring bond with Cambodia.
