Cambodian Students Association in Japan (CSAJ) elects new president

January 17th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Mr. Dyna HENG has been elected President of the Cambodian Students Association in Japan (CSAJ) for the 2008 mandate. The election result came on January 12, 2008.

Dyna is a graduate student of economics from Hitosubashi University‘s Graduate School of Economics.

HENG Dyna, 2008 CSAJ president“I have a dream that CSAJ serves as a stimulating academic forum, a dynamic channel of cultural exchanges, and an active hub of networks among Cambodian students inside and outside Japan,” wrote the president in his policy statement, adding, “however, dreams without vision and passion can make me just a dreamer.” “It is this reason that I run for the presidency of CSAJ to materialize my action and passion toward that dream.”

The newly-elected president aims, in his policy paper, at achieving five major points: absorbing more charity fund to Cambodia especially from Japanese corporations, enhancing academic activism, promoting the learn-how-to-lead environment and strengthening Cambodian students’ network.

One of his initiatives includes essay contest in which high school students in Cambodia partake and three winners will be given a chance to visit Japan on a home stay program, according to his plan of operation.

His new committee also plans to establish an e-journal, Khmer Academic Review, which means for Cambodian students to express their ideas concerning their related fields of study and other current issues. The idea is to have it published twice per year.

CSAJ consists of four regional associations of Cambodian students across Japan: Cambodian Students Association in Nagoya (CSAN), Khmer Students Charity in Kansai, Cambodian Students Association in Kyushu and Cambodian Students Association in Kanto.
