Masafumi Kuroki, Ambassador of Japan, provided some comments related to aid modalities mentioned in 2010 AER. He firstly appreciated RGC for selecting PBA as a tool to avoid aid fragmentation. He further clarified that PBA would be a very pragmatic approach for aid coordination. Secondly, he kindly asked   RGC to reconsider some terms like “long term aid dependency” and “institutional weakness” which was used in AER 2010 on page 31 because these characters might not be appropriately applied to the Cambodia medium and long term perspective. In addition, he suggested RGC to improve and strengthen budget allocation for sectors in order to increase mutual accountability, harmonization, and integration between planning, budgeting, and development assistance. Besides DPs and CSOs, he urged RGC to use and promote private sectors as engine for economic growth.
