Australian Ambassador to the Kingdom of Cambodia, Angela Corcoran, met with 30 university students from the Young Ambassadors for Road Safety (YARS) program to review its progress. The student ambassadors presented on the program’s achievements and lessons learned thus far, and offered recommendations for future implementation. Key initiatives discussed included the ‘Save Lives. Slow Down’ Joint Statement, which was drafted by YARS representatives as part of the 4th UN Global Road Safety Week.
Ms. Corcoran thanked AIP Foundation for its support of the YARS program and the student ambassadors for their efforts to make the roads safe for their local community. The meeting was held at the University of South East Asia in Siem Reap.
