The China Aid-funded Cambodia Rural Road Project-Phase II-Lot 2 is being carried out by the Yunan Construction and Investment Holding Group Co Ltd (YCIH).
The objective of Phase II is to improve road infrastructure in rural parts of Cambodia, which will help in alleviating poverty, as well as boost the rural economy and improve the socio-economic status of people in remote areas.
Some of the provinces that have benefited from the project are Tbong Khmum, Prey Veng and Svay Rieng. China plans to provide financial assistance to fund Cambodia’s rural road projects, repairing and upgrading existing roads.
