  • Description

    CAMBODIA'S PLAN FOR AN AGRICULTURAL INSTITUTION TO PROGRESS TO THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL WITH THE CO-OPERATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT AID HAS BEEN HALTED.

    CONSTRUCTION WAS TO HAVE STARTED LAST MONTH BUT HALTED AS A RESULT OF PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, THE CAMBODIAN HEAD OF STATE, WHO TERMINATED UNITED STATES AID TOTALLING OVER 356 MILLION DOLLARS.

    DIPLOMATIC SOURCES SAID IT IS UNLIKELY CAMBODIA WILL GO AHEAD WITH THE PLAN AND THAT THE SCHOOL MIGHT HAVE TO BE SHELVED.

    CAMBODIA AT PRESENT HAS ONLY 90 MILLION UNITED STATES DOLLARS.THIS WOULD NOT BE SUFFICIENT FOR HER MAJOR IMPORTS -- PETROL AND JUTE-BAGS -- WHICH WERE 100 PER CENT DEPENDENT ON AMERICAN AID.
