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.
