China key contributor to transport infrastructure development in Cambodia: Cambodian minister

China has played and will continue to play a key role in helping develop transport infrastructure in Cambodia, Cambodian Minister of Public Works and Transport Sun Chanthol said on Tuesday.

“I’m very grateful to the government of the People’s Republic of China for having provided a great amount of grant aid and concessional loan to Cambodia for transport infrastructure development,” he said in a speech during the opening ceremony of a Cambodia-China’s Hunan province business forum here.

He said transport infrastructure is crucial to support Cambodia’s socio-economic development and that it facilitates trade and investment, enhances competitiveness, creates jobs, and helps reduce poverty.
