The Festival showcased the thirteen (13) countries' rich heritage through cultural performances, traditional games, traditional instruments, fun quiz, documentaries, food, and products.
The country exhibition booth of the Philippine Embassy showcased Philippine handicrafts, fabrics, pearl accessories, as well as Philippine products available in Cambodia, such as Liwayway (Rinbee) snack foods and Unilab Pharma’s PH Care, Decolgen, and Alaxan. As in previous cultural festivals participated in by the Embassy, its sorbetero cart became a point of interest and curiosity among the festival-goers.
Filipino restaurants and caterers joined the event and sold Filipinos dishes and delicacies such as chicken inasal, chicharon, ube halaya, puto, kuchinta, biko, bilo bilo, and leche flan.
During the ASEAN+3 cultural performances, Phnom Penh-based Filipino teachers Myra Bangad, Shalimar Collado, and Chris Obra played a medley of Filipino folk songs on banduria and ukulele. Ms. Bangad and Ms. Collado also sang the folk song “Lulay” while six (6) RUPP students danced.
The ASEAN Plus Three Festival was a fun-filled and educational treat to participants and visitors alike. END

CAMBODIAN RECIPIENTS OF DOST SCHOLARSHIPS ARRIVE IN MANILA
Three (3) of the ten (10) graduate scholars from Cambodia arrived in Manila last week to take up their respective graduate studies in the Manila campus of the University of the Philippines. They are the first batch of Cambodians awarded by the Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST) with full scholarships on science and engineering.
The three (3) graduate students are Dr. Keo Nariroth (Master of Science in Clinical Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology), Mr. Nam Samoun (Master of Science in Public Health- Environmental Health) and Mr. An Dayuth (Master of Science in Public Health-Nutrition), who have all chosen to enroll at UP Manila -- widely acknowledged as the premier state institution of higher learning in the country for the health sciences.
Along with fifty (50) trainings on science and engineering, the ten (10) scholarships for Cambodians were announced by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during his State Visit to Cambodia in December 2016. They were part of initiatives of the Philippine Government to mark the 60th anniversary of Philippines-Cambodia diplomatic relations.
These training and scholarships were supported through the Philippines’ commitment to the ASEAN Science-Technology-Innovation (STI) Partnership Contributions to further enhance STI collaboration and capacity in ASEAN, particularly through the ASEAN-help-ASEAN scheme for Cambodia, Lao PDR and Myanmar.

Dr. Keo expressed appreciation to the Philippine government for the scholarship stating that "it’s not just a scholarship, but an honor abundant with underlying opportunities that I have never expected to get. It will definitely come in handy as I am able to attend one of the premier universities in the Philippines - the UP Manila. More importantly, it is a privilege to be considered one of the DOST-ASEAN researchers. I truly believe there will be more opportunities ahead waiting for me, as well as the ASEAN scholars. I will forever be grateful."
Seven (7) more Cambodian scholars are scheduled to arrive in the capital later this year to take up their masters in engineering at the Ateneo De Manila, Dela Salle University, and UP Los Baños.
"This Philippine support for Cambodia's human resource development is in keeping with our thrust towards a people-centered relationship between the Philippines and Cambodia," said Philippine Ambassador to Cambodia, Christopher B. Montero. "We continue to work for the increase in people-to-people exchanges, especially among the youth, scientists, tourists, artists, and businessmen," he added. END
