Apsara Authority will hold the 34th Technical Meeting and the 27th Plenary Meeting of ICC-Angkor on Tuesday and Wednesday next week, after delaying it once last year due to COVID-19.
According to Apsara’s announcement, the International Committee to Coordinate the Protection and Development of the Angkor Historic Site (ICC-Angkor) will be held on January 26 and 27, under the presidency of Phoeurng Sackona, Minister of Culture, and the two co-chairs representing France and Japan.
It said the plenary session will focus on policy directions, appeals for funding, validation of new projects and announcements of new projects at Angkor. The technical sessions are held for the experts to exchange their experiences, discuss technical issues and sometimes propose solutions for particular problems.
ICC Angkor has been conducting the bi-annual meetings since 1993. The meetings bring together representatives from 37 countries and 13 international organisations who find ways to ensure the conservation and sustainable standards of Angkor sites are met.
