China has pledged to offer $100 million of preferential loans to build Cambodia's

infrastructure, said Foreign Minister Hor Namhong upon his return from the Philippines

"The loan from China will be used to build National Road No 10 from Battambang

province to Pailin city and the Takhmao Bridge in Kandal province," said Namhong.

The loans follow $200 million in aid and loans announced by China in April 2006.
