The government of Cambodia has begun a feasibility study into a rail link from Phnom Penh to Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), according to reports in The Phnom Penh Post.
Ly Borin, undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Transport, told The Post on Monday that work on a possible railway had begun three months ago at the behest of the Vietnamese government.
He said: “We are studying a railway connecting Snuol district, Kratie province and Bavet city. The Vietnamese side asked us to build a railway from Phnom Penh to the border town of Bavet. The Vietnamese side will build a railway from Ho Chi Minh City to Moc Bai.”
