T HE Asian Development Bank (ADB) has approved a $20 million loan for Cambodia to

provide training for infrastructure development and health services for the

country's poor.

and for the delivery of basic health services in Cambodia," the ADB said in a

statement.

basic-income skills, and planning and management capacities in technical and

concessional Asian Development Fund. It can be repaid over 40 years, including a

grace period of ten years and carries an annual service charge of one percent
