Completion of a tourism port and terminal under construction in Cambodia’s coastal Kampot province will be delayed until late 2021 according to government news agency reports.
Construction has lagged behind schedule with just 30% of the project completed according to the schedule. The project costing around USD8 million is funded by an Asian Development Bank low-interest loan.
The construction fails to meet the deadline as planned this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Ministry of Tourism Under-Secretary of State and Spokesperson, Top Sopheak, who blamed the delay on the Covid-19 pandemic that disrupted the deployment of construction crews to the site.
