Vietnam's Dong Thien Joint

Stock Company has opened a branch in Cambodia and the company is set to begin a

$1.25 million sand exploiting project. A Dong Thien spokesperson told local

media that the project was the biggest the company had undertaken. The company

plans to export up to 7,000 cubic meters of sand each week to Vietnam. "Sand in

Cambodia meets Vietnam's standards for construction sand. The local market is

now short of this material so the market for sand is extremely large," the

spokesperson said.
