Phnom Penh, 29 November 2019 - To help raise awareness of the importance of life insurance and the correct use of Khmer language in life insurance industry, students of the College of Khmer Literature and Language Study were invited to join a Khmer essay competition organized by Prudential Cambodia in partnership with Royal University of Phnom Penh. 

From a pool of 48 essays, three winning essays were selected by a panel of judges formed by professors, Prudential Cambodia’s staff, and customers. 

CEO of Prudential Cambodia David Nutman says he is proud to work with Cambodia’s oldest and largest academic institution. 

As the country’s leading life insurance provider, Prudential Cambodia is strongly committed to contributing to the positive development of Cambodia’s health, education and social welfare.

Culture and language shape our lives in many ways, they affect how we act, think, how we behave, our relationships and habits. At the same time, education grants us not only skills and knowledge, and also a way to use this knowledge and skills to change the world for the better, to support our families, friends and communities,” said Mr. Nutman. 

Authors of all three winning essays received a Koompi laptop while second place was awarded with an additional cash prize of 200 USD, third place with $150 and the first place with 250 USD. 

Junior year student of Khmer Literature and the winner of the essay competition Sek Thida said “I am so thrilled to win this competition.  The opportunity allowed me and other students of the Department of Khmer Literature to review our lessons. Finally, I would like to thank the Royal University of Phnom Penh and Prudential Cambodia for hosting this essay competition.” 

Mr. In Meatra, the director of the Ministry of Economy and Finance Insurance and Pension Department, strongly endorses the initiative to help promote financial literacy and the use of Khmer language. 

Insurance is a part of our country’s financial system...life insurance provides two special elements, saving and protection.  Since we have a healthy national economy, there are many jobs available. All [business] sectors have improved. Thank you Royal University of Phnom Penh for allowing Prudential Cambodia to share your knowledge with students. It will encourage them to consider employment opportunities in the insurance industry, which can further help improve Cambodia’s insurance sector,” he added.

In the six years since Prudential Cambodia first offered life insurance services in the country, the company has initiated a number of programmes to support education and Khmer language.  Prudential has launched a series of educational programmes including Cha-Ching, a programme to increase financial literacy skills among children; STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Education campaigns in Battambang, Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, and, together with Save the Children, First Read initiative to help young children gain essential literacy skills.
