WB approves 100 mln USD credit for Cambodia’s road connectivity improvement project

The World Bank has approved a 100-million-U.S. dollar credit for Cambodia’s road connectivity improvement project, according to its press statement on Friday.

The project will enhance rural communities’ access to critical services, such as health centers, referral hospitals, schools and markets, through the improvement of climate-resilient rural roads, the statement said.

By improving selected sections of national and provincial roads, it will also reduce transportation costs and road disruption risks, helping to facilitate agriculture supply chains and tourism development, it added.
