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

Global Tech, after a courtesy call on the Prime Minister, Hun Sen, last week,

according to the Business News newspaper.

The Asean project, being

studied by the Malaysian Railway Administration, is to link Singapore with

China.

Global Tech is also looking into the development of a national

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