Phnom Penh Port sees growth for freight

FREIGHT shipments through Phnom Penh Autonomous Port increased 31 percent for the first seven months of the year, compared with the same period in 2010. The port handled 43,859 20-foot equivalent units (TEUs) from January to June this year, from 33,364 TEUs in the same period 2010. The increase came through increased imports and exports of agricultural products, textiles and raw materials for the garment industry, and construction materials, said port Director General Hei Bavy. “With the government policy pushing for rice exports, we see that increased agricultural production this year has led to growth in shipments through the port,” he said.
