PHNOM PENH: Australia has been working with key Cambodian government ministries to address challenges to infrastructure development in the country by leveraging the expertise of Australian government agencies.
The assistance is made through Australia’s US$120 million regional Partnership for Infrastructure (P4I) program, pointed out the Australian Embassy in Cambodia in a news release.
Recently, it continued, Austroads CEO, Dr. Geoff Allan visited Cambodia to meet with the Ministry of Public Works and Transport to discuss updating Cambodia’s existing road design standards, which Australia is proud to have contributed to back in the early 2000s.
These standards are critical in ensuring efficient and sustainable road infrastructure development that integrates Gender Equity, Disability, and Social considerations in the road design, the source underlined.
