Global trade has significantly evolved over the past decades, and it will continue to play a very important role in the global economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of this fact, my scholarship for the Master of Global Trade at the RMIT University will lead my path to gain more insight into the subject matter. I will also have my voice heard from the perspective of a professional consultant serving a niche pool of global traders in Cambodia and in the region.
The Hinrich Foundation community will offer me chances to explore and join hands with a diversified network of experts to bolster a stronger trading opportunity within the region.
I will share the knowledge that I will learn from this program with a greater sense of purpose to promote more sustainable economic growth. I will contribute to the advocacy effort to secure balanced outcomes for major interest groups through trade policy making. I will help the Foundation’s ultimate purposes to be well received in Cambodia and around the globe.
