The Cambodian minister of finance Keat Chhon said the resumption of IMF assistance sent a positive signal to the financial community and aid donors.
He added that Cambodia would continue to press ahead with key reforms to assure other international financial institutions and donor countries that the IMF's confidence in his government was not misguided.
