Poverty strategy

The government's three year plan to cut poverty, the so-called PRSP, has been

sent to the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) offices in

Washington. The two multilaterals are currently reviewing the PRSP to see how

good a framework it is for fighting poverty. They will report back to the

government here on February 18 and 19 respectively. The World Bank's office in

Phnom Penh was positive about the document: "From a first look it does look like

it is a document that focuses on poverty reduction," said senior operations

officer Steven Schonberger. The government said the strategy would be formally

launched and distributed during February.
