The government aims to transform Sihanoukville into Cambodia’s industrial hub – a “second Shenzhen city”, Cambodia’s Ministry of Economy and Finance secretary of state Vongsey Vissoth said.
Located along the coast, Preah Sihanouk province boasts an international airport, a railway line connected to Phnom Penh and the Kingdom’s only deep-sea port.
Its construction sector has attracted billions of dollars in investment over the last few years – most of which comes from China. The casino industry had been booming until last year, with large swathes of Chinese tourists and investors coming in to gamble.
