After more than two years under construction, the Tboung Khmum provincial hall in Srolob commune is open for business.
Sitting on about one hectare of land, the administration building, which had been under construction since January 2015, has the capacity to hold 25 departments. The new provincial hall adds to other recent facilities that have been erected in Tboung Khmum, such as a university and hospital.
Kim Heang, president of Cambodian Valuers and Estate Agents Association, said that while there was much development and construction activity in Tboung Khmum, there was limited commercial activity which made it difficult to attract investors to the area.
Heang added, “My suggestion for the revived Tboung Khmum town would be to ask the state to give some land to government officials and the people to live there and initiate some activities. If not, the area will remain quiet.”
