The Annual Education Congress is organized by the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MoEYS) in close collaboration with the Development Partners (Donors, UN, NGOs working in Education).

The Congress will gather over one thousand participants from all the technical departments of MoEYS and all the Provincial Offices of Education, Youth and Sport, relevant Government Ministries/Institutions, Higher Education Institution, and all education stakeholders and DPs. Participants will discuss the achievements and challenges of the implementation of education, youth and sport activities conducted for School Year 2015-2016 and raise the objectives putting forwards for School Year 2016-2017.

Every year the National Education Congress has been valuable in promoting a dialogue on the progress achieved in the education sector and on strategic interventions for quality and equity of education. This Congress is one of the key national forums for Cambodia to review achievements and challenges- particularly to understand of where we stand in terms of annual targets of Education Strategic Plan 2014–2018 as well as on issues of national, regional and international interests for Cambodia. The presentations, discussion and dialogues from the Annual Education Congress would produce concrete recommendations for the implementation of the Education Strategic Plan 2014 – 2018.
