via Phnom Penh Post, 25 September 2018: Budget cuts have a real effect on people working in the field. Workers on the West Mebon restoration project petition for better wages after EFEO announced it was out of budget and could not continue further.

More than a hundred workers who had done restoration work at the West Mebon temple in Siem Reap province said they would petition the French Embassy calling for a resumption of the project.

The call was made after the L’Ecole française d’Extrême-Orient (EFEO) centre, which oversaw the project, announced it had run out of budget and passed the project on to the Apsara Authority, a state body charged with managing the Angkor Archaeological Park.
