T HREE of Cambodia's big donors have agreed to set up committees to closely

coordinate aid to Indochina, said Foreign Affairs Minister Ung Hout.

The

restoration of infrastructure will be coordinated by Japan, development of human

resources by France and development of trade and investment by Thailand and

Japan together, he said on Feb 28, after his return from a four-day trip to

Japan for a conference on development in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam.

Hout

dismissed recent rumors that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the Asian

Development Bank (ADB) had threatened to stop aiding Cambodian government.

" This rumor is not true. Those donors are aiding," he said.
