Statement of HE Ou Orhat
Secretary General, MOP
Chairman, TWG PPR
At the GDCC Meeting on 12 February 2007
Ladies and Gentlemen,
1. I am pleased to inform you that
the work of PPR TWG is proceeding well through the regular and very useful
meetings of the Core Group established for this purpose.
2. The major work before the MOP at
present is the preparation of the annual progress report (APR) on the
progress of implementation of the NSDP during 2006. This APR will be the
main document to be placed before the CDCF meeting due in the middle of
the year. Let me give you a brief update on the progress of this work.
MOP prepared a concept
paper on how to approach the work of preparation of APR as early as
August last year.
This concept paper was
considered and approved by a high level meeting of SNEC, MOP, MEF and
CRDB on 31 August 2006.
This concept paper was also
shared with the TWG-PPR in October 2006.
In mid November 2006, MOP
wrote to all the RGC ministries and agencies to provide necessary inputs
to prepare the APR along with detailed guidelines for this purpose.
MOP received such inputs by
the end of December 2006
Led and guided by HE Tuon
Thavrak, Director-General, the staff of NSDP Secretariat at MOP have now
completed preparation of the first draft along the lines envisaged in
the concept paper.
The first draft will be
sent in the course of this week to all RGC ministries and agencies and
external development partners for their consideration, comments,
corrections and/or additional inputs, if any. We would request all to
give this work highest priority so that we could get your inputs back to
us by 28 February 2007.
Based on such further
inputs we will get a final draft ready for submission to the Council of
Ministers by 31 March for consideration and approval.
3. The work on the APR is therefore
proceeding well and according to schedule. I take this opportunity to
thank all my colleagues in the various ministries and agencies for their
ready cooperation extended to MOP through their timely inputs.
