A MALAYSIAN company is evaluating the economic viability of upgrading the

Kingdom's two rail links, from Phnom Penh to Siha-noukville and

Sisophon.

The proposal was disclosed by Koh Chong Ming, chairman of

China.

Global Tech is also looking into the development of a national

shipping line as well as a vessel repair facility at Sihanoukville.
