China Foundation for Peace and Development (CFPD) and Cambodia’s Civil Society Alliance Forum (CSAF) signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) here on Friday to work together to develop a Cambodia-China friendship model village for poverty alleviation.
The MoA was inked by CFPD’s secretary-general Xu Jianguo and CSAF’s chairman Kemreat Viseth.
Under the deal, both sides decided to select a tiny poor village, Tanorn, for the three-year project. Tanorn is located in a remote area in Bati district in Takeo province, about 60 kilometers south of capital Phnom Penh.
Speaking during a visit to the village a day before the MoA signing, Xu said the project was designed to help reduce poverty in this rural village.
