The Cambodian government will invest $2.5

billion to develop Cambodia's road system from this year to 2025, officials

said. Sun Chan Thol, Minister of Public Works and Transportation, told local

media that developing the Kingdom's road system was a priority for poverty

reduction as improved roads ease trade throughout the country. Thol said the

government was considering a loan and aid package of about $42 million from the

Asian Development Bank, the World Bank, and the Australian government to

facilitate the plan.
