Australia increases aid

The Australian government announced it would increase aid to Cambodia by 11

percent in 2008 - though the actual figure was not specified. Australian

Ambassador Margaret Adamson told Prime Minister Hun Sen the aid would target

agriculture, health and scholarships for Cambodian students, local media

reported. Hun Sen said the Australian aid was well-suited to Cambodia's rural

development and poverty reduction strategies. Australia is Cambodia's third

largest donor, trailing Japan and the United States.
