Suy Sem, the Minister of Mines and Energy, said during a visit to the cement factory on Tuesday that the plant will have a production capacity of 5,000 tonnes per day, or about two million tonnes a year.
“It will produce two kinds of cement: Camel and Diamond Insee cements,” he said.
“When this factory is in full operation, it will create 400 jobs.”
Chip Mong Group and Chip Mong Insee Cement signed a partnership agreement with China’s CITIC Heavy Industries Company last year to build the plant at a cost of $262 million.
Cambodia’s cement demand is expected to reach five million tonnes per year in 2018.
