Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday asked Chinese businessmen to invest in human resources, energy and infrastructure in the Kingdom.
The request was made in the meeting between Mr Hun Sen and the Tianxiachaoshang Economic Conference Investment Delegation at the Peace Palace. The delegation included more than 42 Chinese businesspeople from a wide array of economic sectors, including real estate, finance, agriculture, information technology and healthcare.
Minister Attached to the Prime Minister Sry Thamrong told reporters after the meeting that Mr Hun Sen informed the investors that land disputes have decreased and there is no conflict between the government and citizens.
“Samdech said that we welcomed investors from China and other countries. We do not have to wait for companies from western countries, the European Union or America, we welcome who comes first,” Mr Thamrong said.
He added that the Chinese investors are strongly interested in Cambodia. Trade between Cambodia and China was worth $5 billion last year, a 21 percent increase compared to 2016.
