Kandal: On December 09, 2009 at the Department of Land Management, Urban Planning, Construction and Cadastre of Kandal Province, there was a handover ceremony of the results of the project for the Installation of National Geodetic Control Points in Cambodia which is the grant aids project of the government of the Republic of Korea through Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). The ceremony was presided over by H.E. Im Chhun Lim, Senior Minister, Minister of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction, and with the participation of H.E. Lee Kyung-soo, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the Kingdom of Cambodia, Mr. Representative of KOICA office in Cambodia, H.E. governor and deputy governor of provices and city, and many other government officals from all relevant ministries.


H.E. Lee Kyung-soo, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to the Kingdom of Cambodia stated at the ceremony about the cooperation between the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Korea, especially about the Installation of National Geodetic Control Points in Cambodia. He added that this project was the third project that was supported by KOICA after the last 2 project successfully implemented in 2004 and 2006 respectively.


The purpose of this project is to extend the number of first level Geodetic Control Points adding to the already-built geodetic control points in Kampong Chhnang, Pursat and Koh Kong provinces as well as the geodetic control points made by other projects like urban planning and land administration project to create the only one National Geodetic Control Points after being degraded.



Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Cambodia further stressed that 2.5 million USD project started in December 2007 and it was implemented for 23 months and produced such results as the installation of 155 first-level interrelated posts across Cambodia, 7 zero level posts, and the installation of 3 GNSS/CORS-Global Navigation Satellite System/Continuous Operational reference Stations in Kandal, Siem Reap and Kratie province.


At the same time, Mr. Cho Woon Ho, Vice President of KOICA, at the ceremony, appreciated the result of the project which is another symbol of the strengthening of the relationship between the 2 countries, Cambodia-Korea. He added that the network of geodetic control points is one of the most fundamental geographic information systems that serve as the basis for various governmental activities such as cadastral surveys, national mapping, and national and urban planning. It is quite necessary and urgent to build the geodetic control points since the Kingdom of Cambodia has lost most of its survey and cadastral data.


Replying to the donor, H.E. Minister Im Chhun Lim highly appreciated the result of the project, especially the training during the project implementation to transfer modern technology from Korean technician to 50 related management and technical officials, which is the important goal of the cooperation as stipulated in the memorandum of understanding between the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction, and the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs of Korea during the visit of Samdech Akkak Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, to the Republic of Korea in June 2009.


He added that the achievement, especially the building of topographic digital maps in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Preah Sihanouk, and the creation of master plan for geographical data organization, which was principally approved by KOICA, and which will be implemented basing on the result of this project, has really been contributing to the extension and the strengthening of the cooperation between the 2 countries, the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Korea.


At the same time, H.E. Minister Im Chhun Lim highly appreciated the all levels of government officers of the Department of Land Management, Urban Planning, Construction and Cadastre of Kandal province who got high achievement in solving land, especially implementing of this project. Therefore, the protection of these geodetic network points, he would like to appeal to all levels of local authorities, all relevant technical administrative to help monitor and protect these points, also inform to the local people not to remove, move or destroy. If any cases happened, the offenders shall be fined or imprisoned.


At that time, Senior Minister Im Chhun Lim awarded the medal of the Kingdom of Cambodia to KOICA who worked very hard to push the project toward this positive result for the Kingdom of Cambodia.
