Agri-boom boosts Battambang city property

Along with the constant growth in the agricultural sector in Battambang province, the property sector in Battambang city has begun to see an increase in value.

Battambang’s property sector is seeing a strong growth in real estate, as many hotels and guesthouses are being erected with the continuous growth of tourism and agriculture, said Chrek Soknim, CEO of Century21 VTrust.

“Battambang’s economy has seen an increase because of people’s increasing income, the tourism sector and the ever-growing agricultural sector, which plays a vital role in the province,” he said.

The situation with Battambang’s property sector has seemingly changed this year with agriculture being the main factor boosting the property sector, said Po Eavkong, managing director of Asia Real Estate Cambodia.
