Preah Sihanouk Provincial Hall signed an agreement in cooperation with Royal Group and Sinohydro Co Ltd yesterday to build a 70km road on Koh Rong Island.
Provincial governor Kuoch Chamroeun signed the agreement with Kith Meng, chairman of the board of directors of the Royal Group, to construct the road in the Koh Rong Development Area on the island.
The road is set to be completed within 16 months at a cost of $35 million.
Chamroeun said he welcomed the private company investment as it will provide infrastructure and improve travel for locals and tourists visiting Koh Rong.
