The government body that oversees the Angkor Wat complex met with development partners in a bid to secure resources that will support future excavation work, officials said Monday. Plans are in place for local archaeologists to partner with experts from ENRAP, or Knowledge Networking for Rural Development in Asia/Pacific Region, on future excavations, according to Mao Lao, director of the Apsara Authority’s Department of Monuments and Archaeology. “They will cooperate with us when we have excavation work in the future,” she said. Discussions on funding and a timeline for future joint excavations have yet to be determined, she said. Apsara Authority Director Bun Narith could not be reached for comment on Monday.
