Sihanoukville, the country's main port and a popular tourist destination, will be
boosted by a $52 million electricity generation project over the next four years,
local media have reported.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is offering a $20 million loan, and the Cooperation
Bank of Japan a $22.3 million loan for the power project, according to a statement
by the ADB. The power project would be finished in 2010 at a total cost of roughly
$52 million, with $9.7 million of the cost being met by Cambodia.
