US aid down

The United States funding for Cambodia is slated to drop 25 percent in fiscal

year 2008, with the cuts attributed to a tight budgetary environment in

Washington and a realignment of global development priorities.

US Embassy

spokesman Jeff Daigle told local newspapers that after the 2008 national

elections there would be a shift in focus for US assistance, to developing

democratic institutions, strengthening peace and security, improving the health

system and encouraging market-driven economic growth.
