Run Ta Ek, Peak Sneng families will receive official land titles

The government will provide land title to families who volunteered to leave Angkor Archaeological Park and other areas under the control of the Apsara National Authority (ANA) and relocate to Run Ta Ek area in Banteay Srei district or Peak Sneng commune in Angkor Thom district.

“I think this is an offer for our people who are voluntarily going to leave Angkor Archaeological Park and relocate to this area. Some people said this is a kind of social land concession, but it is not like that. I decided to give land titles right away for you all to use as collateral in taking out loans,” said Prime Minister Hun Sen while meeting with people in the Run Ta Ek area on October 21.

He explained that the offer of land in these two areas is different from social land concessions in which those using the land cannot receive official land titles.

Nevertheless, he stressed that only people who have already moved to the two areas will receive land titles, although they have already received some other benefits through the cash transfer programme.

According to the Minister of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction Chea Sophara, as of October 20, a total of 9,134 families had volunteered to move out of Angkor Archaeological Park and other areas under the control of the ANA.
