Hi

I want to say that my country will start to think or announce that April 15 is the start of Khmer New Year. Which word verb should I use?

For example: Cambodia 'take or make or set or assign' April 15 (as?) the start of Khmer New Year

Thanks

    Cambodia has designated April 15th as the start of the Khmer New Year.

    For "start" you might want "first day."

    Well, I guess the government could make April 15th the start of the Khmer New Year, but designate is one of those "official" words for this sort of thing.
