Recommendation concerning cultural property management on the Angkor site:

The new international recommendation on museums and collections adopted by UNESCO on November 17, 2015 as well as the UNESCO 1970 Convention and national legislation recognize the crucial importance of inventorying cultural properties as the primary means for the protection and promotion of moveable cultural heritage.

In this regard, it is recommended that the APSARA National Authority take the necessary steps to make a general inventory of international standard for all cultural property discovered on and belonging to the archaeological sites. This general inventory will be implemented, when necessary, in collaboration with the international teams conducting programs at Angkor.

The APSARA National Authority will request UNESCO’s cooperation for implementation of the foregoing.
