Green-friendly equipment distributed to Preah Sihanouk

China has delivered a range of green-friendly equipment to Preah Sihanouk province in a bid to raise environmental awareness and bolster the Kingdom’s battle against carbon emissions and climate change.

The Ministry of Environment announced on November 22 that the Chinese government had honoured a previous agreement and supplied the coastal province with at least 2,800 solar lights, 200 solar panels and 200 electric motorcycles.

“Currently, all materials and equipment have arrived at the Sihanoukville Autonomous Port and will be installed in schools and public places,” the ministry said.

Environment ministry spokesman Neth Pheaktra on November 23 said Cambodia had been cooperating with China on environmental protection issues for many years.

“The Chinese government has also provided technical assistance for air and water quality monitors that were installed by the environment ministry at various stations,” he said.

The new equipment was provided to Cambodia through a Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation for a Low-Carbon Test Pilot Project signed between the Kingdom’s environment ministry and China’s Ministry of Ecology and Environment.

As part of the agreement, the Cambodian ministry encouraged all stakeholders to participate in activities to raise environmental awareness and reduce climate change. The cooperation aimed to help Cambodia achieve clean cities, environmental harmony and sustainable living.

Preah Sihanouk Provincial Hall spokesman Kheang Phearum said on November 23 that the provincial administration had not yet received any details about the new equipment.
