Provincial inspections

LAND management authorities are preparing to fan out across the Kingdom’s to spur on construction projects that may have flagged during the economic downturn, an official said Thursday. “We are planning to go down to inspect and strengthen all the construction project sites in Cambodia, to persuade and cooperate with developers to push ahead with their plans,” said Lao Tip Seiha, director of the Construction Department at the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction. Authorities will also work to ensure the projects are following safety guidelines and following construction laws, he said. The first five provinces to receive inspections will be Banteay Meanchey, Battambang, Kampong Chhnang, Pailin and Pursat. The visits follow a ministry initiative last year to encourage Phnom Penh projects such as US$2 billion Camko City and $300 million Gold Tower 42.
