Koreans raise job hopes

Korean investors want to start five projects in Cambodia with the capacity to

absorb about 50,000 workers, says a delegation that called on the Prime Minister,

Hun Sen, according to Business News. Plans included a shoe factory and a factory

to make insect repellant. The delegation, on a fact-finding tour, is reported as

saying its members were also considering building a commercial port in Sihanouk-ville.

However Suy Sem, Minister of Industry, Mines and Energy, told the Post he was not

aware of the Korean delegation's visit or ambitions. The General Director of the

Ministry of Social Affairs, Oum Mean, told the Post he knew of the information only

from television and radio reports.
