China has signed a contract with Cambodia to draw up a road network master plan for the country.
The contract was signed between China’s Henan Provincial Communications Planning Survey and Design Institute and Cambodia’s Transport Ministry.
Cambodia’s Transport Ministry Secretary of State Lim Sidenine said the one-year project will cost about 644,000 U.S. dollars, which is a grant aid from the Chinese government.
He said after signing the contract, Chinese experts will begin to look into the current road situation in Cambodia before drawing up a road network master plan for the country.
Song Xiaoguo, economic councilor of the Chinese Embassy to Cambodia, believed that the upcoming road network master plan will “act as an important road map for Cambodia in developing national and provincial roads.”
Data showed that nearly 2,500 km of roads and seven large-scale bridges have been built in Cambodia under China’s concessional loans
