The Oversight Committee

The Oversight Committee members have backgrounds in business, investment, private sector development, infrastructure, and international development. All members must be independent of Investing in Infrastructure and both the Cambodian and Australian governments.

The Committee members review and approve project proposals, ensuring the guiding principles are followed in a credible and appropriate way. The committee also examines any due diligence concerns regarding an individual company or project.
