11. WMF projects
Ta Som. Approve project launch but recommend not leaving out the monument’s at-risk areas; carrying out overall maintenance of the temple.
Concur with APSARA Authority’s request to benefit from the technical and scientific assistance of a prestigious institution such as WMF for the conservation, safeguarding and rehabilitation of the Churning of the sea of milk bas-reliefs in Angkor Vat western gallery, without including a research component but instead considering the project itself as the intervention.
Thank WMF for providing funding and technical expertise to APSARA Authority, but once APSARA umbrella ministry, the Council of Ministers, makes a final decision regarding institutions that should conduct work on the monuments outlined in the project (Beng Melea, Banteay Chhmar and Khbal Spean).
