A conference will be held at the end of the month to address issues emerging from the "complex interplay" of the city's urbanisation and the heritage conservation taking place in the broader Angkor region. Titled "Siem Reap Urban Development in the Shadow of Angkor", the conference will be held at the Angkor Village Hotel from Sunday, October 26, to Wednesday, October 29. Five main issues to be addressed include infrastructure, development, conservation, and sustainability of economic and tourism policy. The aim is to develop an effective Siem Reap Master Plan. Collaborating agencies are the Pacific Rim Council for Urban Development, The Getty Institute, The Center for Khmer Studies, and Apsara Authority.
