Angkor preservation meeting begins today

ABOUT 200 local and international conservation groups will meet with delegations from donor countries in Siem Reap tomorrow to review their assistance and work in safeguarding and developing the historic temples in the Angkor Archaeological Park. Seang Kong, deputy director general of the Apsara Authority, who are in charge of managing the site, said countries such as China, Italy, Japan and France will meet to discuss if any further funding is needed based on the review of the conservation of the site in the past year. “We do not know how much our budget and assistance will be,” he said. “It will depend on the individual donor countries who have been active in the preservation and development projects at the site.”
