According to APWINC, Cambodia is a young country in its 20s and 30s that makes up more than 70 percent of the population, and women, in particular, have the full support of the royal family and other countries as a pan-disciplinary issue. Women-related issues account for a high percentage of government policies, with the Women's National Committee suggesting policies directly to the prime minister and queen.
Director, Kim myung-hee of APWINC said that "Since the Cambodian training group consists of senior officials from various ministries, including the Women`s National Committee, an organization under the prime minister, it will not only lead to actual policy reflection and implementation, but will also serve as a great opportunity for the establishment of close and lasting cooperative relations between Korea and Cambodia."
