Lisa Filipetto has been appointed Australia's new Ambassador to Cambodia, starting

in April. Filipetto has been Third Secretary in Brunei (1986-89), First Secretary

in Dublin (1991-94) and Consul-General in Ho Chi Minh City (1997-2001). She is a

graduate of the Australian National University with degrees in economic and the arts.

The announcement said Australia is playing an active role in a process of national

of a Khmer Rouge Tribunal.

The two countries are working closely on combating people smuggling and trafficking,

child-sex tourism, narcotics trafficking and on issues such as counter-terrorism.
