Market to be rebuilt after donations made

Work to rebuild Kratie town market is set to start in a week after government officials offered US$259,000 following a fire that destroyed up to 400 stalls last Thursday. Members of the Council of Ministers donated the cash, earmarked for a new roof, following a request by Prime Minister Hun Sen. Damage from the blaze, said Kratie provincial governor Kham Phoeun, is estimated to be worth around US$70,000. The provincial authority will provide new water and electrical systems for the new market.
