At the closing ceremony of the 2017 Annual General Assembly and the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts's 2018 work on 8th February 2018 at Chaktomok Conference Hall, Deputy Prime Minister Men Sam An, Minister of National Assembly–Senate Relations and Inspection, appealed to the public and the private sector ''Do not allow tourism to spoil culture, but using culture to expand tourism'', so the tourism will be sustainable and ensure that the tourism sector not spoil the culture. This is the point, which we constantly reminded that World Heritage sites such as Angkor Wat, Preah Vihear and Sambor Prei Kuk were not violated through heritage and cultural tourism that have brought billions of dollars into the national economy.

Deputy Prime Minister Men Sam An confirmed that the Royal Government of Cambodia under the wise leadership of Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo HUN Sen has paid much attention to the culture and has a clear vision that focus on preserving, reserving and developing national cultural heritage, based on "Conservation for Development and Development for Conservation" for the development of the nation and the transfer of this precious heritage to the next generations.
