Cambodia will host meetings of the International Coordinating Committee for the Safeguarding and Development of Historic Site of Angkor (ICC-Angkor) and the 3rd Inter-Governmental Conference in December this year in Siem Reap province with an aim to gather international support for the protection and preservation of Angkor archaeological site.

The information was made known here on June 7 at a meeting between Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister in charge of the Office of the Council of Ministers H.E. Sok An with Japanese Ambassador H.E. Yuji Kumamaru, French Ambassador H.E. Serge Mostura and UNESCO Representative to Cambodia H.E. Ms. Anne Lemaistre, according to Mr. Ek Tha, spokesman for the Press and Quick Reaction Unit at the Council of Ministers.

On the occasion, the Cambodian DPM expressed his profound appreciation to the Governments of France and Japan for their continuing support to safeguard Angkor, which also contributes to the socio-economic development of Cambodia.

H.E. Sok An has also expressed appreciation to the international community for injecting some $250 million of assistance for the temples’ restoration since 1993 and for working so successfully as to have ICC-Angkor seen as a model for such cooperation in the field of world heritage.

Angkor was first inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1992. A year later, the first Inter-Governmental Conference, the International Coordinating Committee for the Safeguarding and Development of the Historic Site of Angkor (ICC-Angkor), was set up to protect, preserve and develop this vast cultural heritage site.

In 2003, the 2nd Inter-Governmental Conference held in Paris Conference spelled out guidelines on heritage and sustainable development.
