World leaders have agreed at the Millennium Summit in September 2000, on a common
agenda for change known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of time-
bound and measurable goals and targets for combating extreme poverty, hunger,
diseases, illiteracy, environmental degradation and discrimination against women.

“The challenges are formidable. Yet, the MDGs are within reach if we all put our hearts
and minds into the realization of Cambodia’s developmental potential”, said Prime
Minister Hun Sen. “The Royal Government of Cambodia is fully committed to achieve
the Cambodian MDGs that rapidly become the cornerstones of our development policies
and strategies. Documenting our actions, successes, experiences and the challenges
ahead, the report proves our firm commitment and spurs all parties to work to build a
strong partnership for the development of Cambodia”, he added.
