Grant assistance: Schools, demining get boost

The government of Japan is to sign agreements to provide more than US$250,000 in assistance to the Kingdom to support education at a ceremony today at the embassy.

Japan is providing almost $170,000 to support new science labs at teacher training centres in Siem Reap and Battambang provinces, a statement said yesterday.

The aid package also includes $85,000 to the Bakan district education bureau for a new building at Koh Krasang Primary School in Pursat province.

Also this week, the government signed an agreement for $1.3 million from Germany to support mine clearance operations by the Cambodian Mine Action Centre in Oddar Meanchey and Preah Vihear provinces.
Spokeswoman Nem Sowathey said Germany has supported yearly proposals from CMAC since 1999.
