The United States funding for Cambodia is slated to drop 25 percent in fiscal
year 2008, with the cuts attributed to a tight budgetary environment in
Washington and a realignment of global development priorities.
spokesman Jeff Daigle told local newspapers that after the 2008 national
elections there would be a shift in focus for US assistance, to developing
democratic institutions, strengthening peace and security, improving the health
system and encouraging market-driven economic growth.
