Mr. Ben Cumming, First Secretary at the Australia Embassy, recently visited Prince Horology Vocational Training Center to learn about its progress in human capital development for future watchmakers in Cambodia.
The representative from the Australian Embassy was received by Gabriel Tan, Chief Communications Officer of Prince Holding Group, and Jessica Thakur, an instructor at Prince Horology hailing from Australia who trained in watchmaking in Switzerland.
During the courtesy visit, the high-level official also met with six Cambodian watchmaking students and learned about their aspirations to hone skills for a valuable and internationally sought-after craft. The visit was followed by a luncheon in which the delegations discussed potential business collaboration opportunities with Australian enterprises based in Cambodia.
“I was pleased to learn that Cambodian students are learning from an experienced horology instructor originally from Australia and making a difference to the vocational education landscape in the country,” said Mr. Ben Cumming, First Secretary to Australian Embassy in Cambodia. “It was an instructive visit about a progressive upskilling initiative being imported to nurture Cambodian youths.”
“We welcome the representative from the Australian Embassy to learn more about the training we provide. We are humbled by the opportunity to be able to play a small part towards talent development in the Kingdom and building a better future for Cambodia,” said Gabriel Tan, Chief Communications Officer of Prince Holding Group.
Prince Holding Group, under the leadership of Chairman Chen Zhi, has a keen focus on human capital development to aid economic growth for the Kingdom.
