Prum Mol, while the closing ceremony by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister in charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers H.E. Sok An at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Campus II.

The purpose of the workshop was to advise journalists and TV and radio anchors to use and write Khmer language properly because they have great impacts on the public on the way Khmer language is spoken and written, said H.E. Prum Mol.

Therefore, proper controlling and use are required because language use on media is very crucial in deed for Khmer preservation, he underlined.

For his part, H.E. Khieu Kanharith said the Khmer language use on media is a very significant task, so NCKL has tried to do research and sought to find unified agreement for the common and correct wording.

H.E. Khieu Kanharith also requested NCKL to compile and publish as much as possible available documents already edited and agreed for the research of journalists, as well as TV and radio anchors and students to be aware of the proper use of Khmer language.

H.E. Khieu Kanharith further asked the TV and radio anchors to work together to form an association so as to easily communicate and exchange experience.
