The Japan Fund for Poverty Reduction granted US$1.9 million for a programme to support the production and marketing of local crafts.

Administered by the Asian Development Bank, the programme aims to train 1,500 people and develop a local product market near Sambor Prei Kuk temple complex, the ADB said in a press release. A separate ADB project is upgrading 500 kilometres of rural roads, including a link to the temple complex. The Cambodian government will also contributed $184,200 to the crafts project.
