Coordinating Committee for the Safeguarding of the Historic Site of
Angkor held its 15th plenary session in Siem Reap Monday, focusing on
sustainable development at the Angkor temple complex. During the
session, Japanese Ambassador Katsuhiro Shinohara said that "Angkor has
become one of the most attractive sites globally" and that there needs
to be "more serious grappling with sustainability issues". The
committee's next technical session will be held in June 2009.
