Updated: 2018-07-03


The first phase of China-financed water project in Cambodian countryside was completed, according to a ceremony held in southern Kandal province, Cambodia on July 2.

China signed cooperation documents with Cambodia in areas including infrastructure, agriculture, and trade during Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen's state visit to China in 2016.

The water project is included in one of these agreements. 

Constructed by China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), the project will maintain the production of safe drinking water supply to nearly 100,000 residents in six provinces of Cambodia. 

The project is a major effort taken by CNNC to push forward the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, said Wang Shoujun, chairman of CNNC, speaking at the ceremony.

He added that the water project is also a symbol of friendly relationship between China and Cambodia. 

CNCC began construction on July 10 last year, bringing 846 new deep wells and 73 ponds. 

As the general contractor of the first phase of the project, the enterprise has received wide acclaims in quality and management of the construction.
