The NGO Forum’s Public Statement relating meeting with Ministry

The NGO Forum on Cambodia (NGOF) is a membership organization made up of 87 local and international non-governmental organizations, as well as more than 200 network member organizations with experience in humanitarian and development assistance to Cambodia. The NGOF exists for information-sharing, debate, and advocacy on priority issues affecting Cambodia’s development. The NGOF plays an important role by highlighting the impact of development processes, as well as economic, social, and political changes, on Cambodians.

NGOF confirms that a meeting took place on 18th August 2011 between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and NGOF together with an international NGO.  

During the meeting, a warning letter was issued to NGOF and the international NGO.  This was in relation to a letter written by the NGOF and other NGOs to the President of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in October 2010, which had raised some concerns in relation to resettlement impacts from the Railway project. Subsequently, NGOF informed its members and donors. NGOF is currently in the process of responding to this letter.

NGOF has maintained meaningful dialogue and has exhibited good cooperation with the Royal Government of Cambodia in the past and will continue to engage with the Royal Government. We are confident that this meaningful dialogue and cooperation with the Cambodian government will continue to contribute to equitable and sustainable development in Cambodia.
