T HE European Union's $15-million educational program - a co-operative effort

with the Royal Government - has expanded into the provinces, says EU spokesman

Trolliet Batrick.

Part of the EU's $80 million aid package, the two-year

primary educational program was launched five months ago and has spread from

Phnom Penh to Battambang, Takmao and Takeo.

The project, involving up to

48,000 students, includes teacher training, curricula reform, management

training, equipment and materials. Batrick said EU has made a long-term

commitment to Cambodia, with its 10 different programs.
