An information centre for Chinese nationals and a Chinese consulate will be established in Sihanoukville following a meeting between new provincial governor Kouch Chamroeun and Chinese ambassador Wang Wentian, provincial spokesperson Kheang Phearum told The Post on Sunday.
During Thursday's meeting, Chamroeun requested Wentian to help with the establishment of the information centre and Chinese consulate, Phearum said.
“Provincial governor Kouch Chamroeun requested the establishment of a consulate and a Chinese information centre to raise awareness of Cambodia's laws among Chinese nationals living and investing in Preah Sihanouk province.
"The aim is to help them learn about Cambodia's culture and laws,” Phearum said.
He said the Chinese ambassador agreed to the governor’s request, but a date for the establishment of the consulate and centre had yet to be set.
