EU cooperation with Asia: Press trip to Cambodia

18 November - 20 November 2015, Cambodia (DEVCO 2015)


The European Journalism Centre, in cooperation with DG International Cooperation and Development of the European Commission, invites 12 EU journalists to travel to Cambodia on a three-day press visit to explore the development cooperation between the EU and the Kingdom of Cambodia.

The goal of the EU development strategy for Cambodia is to help reduce poverty, enable sustainable growth and development, foster respect for human rights, democratic participation and an active civil society. As such, EU development cooperation programmes involve Cambodians from all walks of life and take place in sectors ranging from education and agriculture to governance, public finance management, private sector development and climate change. In the period 2014-2018, the EU and its Member States are estimated to disburse ? 1.4 billion in support of Cambodia's development agenda.

The trip will start in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, where the selected journalists will take part in a briefing on current state of play of the EU ? Cambodia development cooperation with high representatives from the EU Delegation. The press visit will continue with visits to different EU funded projects covering among others agriculture, education, human rights, etc. In addition, the journalists will get an opportunity to travel to Siem Reap in northwestern Cambodia, the former seat of the Khmer kingdom, to report on location, visit other EU funded projects and meet beneficiaries.

The press trip is planned for 18-20 November 2015, with arrival in Phnom Penh on 17 November and departure on 21 November from Siem Reap (with the option of flying back in and out at an earlier or later date, respectively).

A more detailed seminar programme will be available shortly. The event will give priority to journalists covering foreign affairs and development issues.
