PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) – Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF), Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, praised the 1st Brigade's intervention in 2019 in national defense, security and safety.



Speaking at a joint review of the 2019 Security Forces Outcome and the 2020 Brigade 1 Intervention Brigade's Action Plan on Kompong Chhnang Province on Friday, March 6, 2020, Mr. Manet expressed his appreciation for achievements and achievements. The officers of the Intervention Battalion, the deputy commanders and the officers of the 1st Intervention Brigade achieved in the fulfillment Protection of territorial integrity, peacekeeping, safety and public order, as well as leadership of organized forces, ensure the effectiveness of training and regulatory interventions, especially the strengthening of strong units in all fields. Involvement of the leadership and military personnel throughout the division. These reflected the strong spirit of the organization, while contributing to the Alliance's support.

He added that the training was a priority, as existing and complementary forces received regular capacity building training. On the other hand, the challenge for the future is the ability of our officers who have never experienced combat, so the training and transfer of experience and skills from the previous officers is also a determining factor for the officer. We are strong, our army is strong. For the intervention brigade, work priorities should focus on organizational strengthening, setting up training schools, strengthening training facilities, camps, shelters and infrastructure, as well as the equipment and means of transportation needed for training.

He says force management is also a matter of concern, especially managing existing forces. Less force, but focus on the quality of the division of force. Of course quantity and quality are a factor, but also what is "quantity quality". Quantity is the number on the file. The quality is based on the capabilities of each soldier. The "quality of quantity" does not, however, refer to the capacity of individual soldiers. But it is mainly related to the assignment: proper training to ensure a proper 'quality of quantity', that is, to target skilled officers and to the officers who are serving. Targets also need to be strengthened.

In addition, he would like to thank the Coalition for supporting the 1st Brigade of the Intervention Brigade until its progress has been made and in addressing some of the challenges and specific needs that this is a contribution. Significant in strengthening the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, the core of the defense.
