Cambodia, Japan museums trade expertise again

The head of the Cambodian National Museum yesterday started a three-year joint training project with the staff of two museums in Okinawa, Japan.

It’s the second phase of a cooperative effort that started in 2009, when 11 Cambodian museum staff trained at Japanese museums focusing on World War II’s bloody Battle of Okinawa, which claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.

As part of the project, Japan also sent its experts to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.

National Museum director Oun Phallin said the new sessions will provide invaluable training in areas including documentation and budgeting.
