Embassy of India celebrates 74th Independence Day of India

On 25th August, 2020, in an impressive handing over ceremony, H.E. Ms. Manika Jain, Ambassador of India to Cambodia has handed over cheques to representatives of Operation ASHA and National Centre for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM), Ministry of Health for undertaking 3 Quick Impact Projects (QIP) for (i) TB Care Delivery in Rural & peri-urban Cambodia, (ii) Reduction of Dengue Morbidity and Mortality, and (iii) Reducing the Malaria Burden in Cambodia respectively. 

To give a brief background on the QIPs that are being executed by India in Cambodia, keeping in mind the friendly relations between India and Cambodia and to contribute to socio-economic development and improvement of public welfare in Cambodia, during the visit of Vice President of India to Cambodia in September 2015, an MoU was signed between India and Cambodia for implementation of Quick Impact Projects (QIP) under Mekong Ganga Cooperation (MGC) initiative.  The projects under the QIP Scheme are short gestation projects that directly benefit local communities with results that are immediate and visible. 

Under the QIP Scheme, Government of India provides grant assistance for implementation of 10 socio-economic projects every year for creation or upgradation of physical infrastructure such as roads, local community centres or social infrastructure in education, health, sanitation or community development sectors.  These projects have received overwhelming response and created a distinct and visible impact among the beneficiaries.   Till date, 19 projects have already been completed and the 15 more projects are at various stages of execution.
