10. Angkor Thom: East enclosure wall, Prasat Chrung Southeast:

10.1. In principle, the ad hoc group of experts is not totally against the use of reinforced concrete props as far as they are reversible but it may be aesthetically questionable in some cases. It must be remembered that they are temporary supports and should be inconspicuous, visually in harmony with the short-term presentation of the architectural structures concerned.

10.2. As for the entire Angkor Thom enclosure wall, 12 km in length, the group recommends that the APSARA National Authority earmark an annual sufficient restoration budget up to the scale of this structure in order to carry out final consolidation work in the many areas already identified exhaustively and in detail on the risk map.
