Japan agrees to assist Kingdom water supplier

The Japanese development agency signed an agreement with the Ministry of Industry and Handicrafts on Monday to assist the administrative capacity of the government department responsible for Cambodia’s water supply.

As part of the agreement, the Japan International Cooperation Agency will send technical experts to train Cambodia’s General Department of Potable Water Supply (GDPWS). “

The Japanese experts will help improve our officials’ capacity in many technical skills that work for developing clean water,” said Prak Prakat, director-general of the GDPWS. In a separate announcement, the ministry said it oversaw the groundbreaking for a new water treatment facility in Kampot province on Sunday.

The project is set to provide 2,000 cubic metres of water per day to about 10,000 families across six communes, and is scheduled to be completed in two years.
