Dr Seng Cheaseth (Cambodia)

Master of International Customs Law and Administration (Dr. Cheaseth was a recipient of the CCES Award for Excellence) – 2009

Current Job Position: Deputy Director of Law, Litigation and Statistics Department of General Department of Taxation (GDT) of Ministry of Economy and Finance.

My studies with CCES have provided me with a fruitful knowledge base that is useful in my current role at the GDT. It has also provided me with a good insight into relevant areas, namely direct and indirect taxation policies and administration as well as regulatory compliance, which are directly related to my current role. As a result of my studies I am now in the habit of conducting full research on topics before presenting my reports to stakeholders. Moreover, as I studied the course online, the time I spent with CCES has further developed my self-discipline and time management skills, which are essential in professional career life.

I would like to share a quote: “learning is the way to acquire new knowledge and skills and perfection is just a matter of practice”.
