Cambodia eyes Silk Road connectivity
Chinese funding is helping the country meet more than US$500 million infrastructure needs
Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen says he’ll focus on securing “connectivity infrastructure” to China’s One Belt, One Road project when he attends a major project forum in Beijing next month, reports the China Daily.
“Our main goal is to focus on infrastructure development,” the PM said during a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a China-funded road near Phnom Penh. He says Cambodia needs US$500 million to US$700 million a year to develop roads, bridges, electric power and irrigation systems across the country.
