THE Council for the Development of Cambodia has approved plans to build a new US$1 billion international airport in Siem Reap.

Although the project still awaits final approval from Prime Minister Hun Sen, CDC deputy secretary general Duy Thov said the airport had been welcomed by relevant ministries and institutions to proceed as planned.

“I hope it won’t take a long time to approve – I think it can occur as we all agreed,” he said.

He declined to specify a timeline for the project until the Prime Minister made his decision.

Siem Reap province deputy governor Bun Tharith said the $1 billion investment would come from NSIA Company, a joint venture owned by two South Korean firms, Camco Airport Company and Lees A&A Company.

The government would offer about 500 hectares of concession land in Chie Kreng and Sonikum districts, 60 kilometres from the provincial capital, he said.


“We don’t have any problem with the land – now we just wait for the project to begin,” he said.
The investment would be in the form of a Build-Operate-Transfer agreement, he said, meaning the airport would eventually come under Cambodian government control.

Bun Tharith said he expected direct flights to increase with the new airport, as it would have the capacity to accept larger planes.

“About 30 foreign countries proposed direct flights to Siem Reap, but [have been held up] because we don’t have the new airport yet,” he said.

State Secretariat of Civil Aviation undersecretary Eng Sour Sdey agreed the airport would offer more opportunities for long-haul flights.

“The old airport is just for short-distance flights, and could land only from the east,” he said.

“It cannot be expanded without impacting the temples.”

Long-distance flights facilitated by the new airport are crucial to attracting more tourists from overseas, particularly from those areas without temples of their own, according to Apsara Authority director general Bun Narith.

“If we have a new airport, there will be more access for direct flights from other countries – an increase in the number of tourists will follow,” he said.
Bun Narith said a lift in tourists would create more local jobs.

Guys, this thread somehow is really popular. No offense but it's Phnom Penh.. Cambodia... It's not like NY or Dubai. Now there are not that many developments or at least developments worth mentioning going on ( That's what I think after reading some of the last pages in this thread ). I think you guys more use this as some discussion thread. Of like any kind of discussions. I'd like that to stop. A lot of useless posts here. As mentioned with big black bold letters in the first post: There is a Cambodian subforum to discuss this stuff. This thread get's bumped and bumped every single day and everyone's like, wow there must be some really great stuff going on there but actually you guys are most of the time just discussing the daily news or are discussing some development for 3 pages straight.

So please take the unnecessary discussions to the local subforum, that would be greatly appreciated. If you disagree with me or feel offended, please feel free to pm me and let me know. Please don't reply to this message in here, use pm instead

Jet Li, Angelina Jolie targeted for new movie in Cambodia

(Sorry guys I know this thread is not about films or movies but I'm just really happy that Hollywood is making movie about ( The Great Khmer Empire). It will srok khmer famous and will bring tourists to Cambodia. Best news of this year.

PHNOM PENH, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- A famous Chinese action movie star Jet Li (Chinese name: Li Lianjie), and American movie actress Angelina Jolie are expected to be included in a new movie to be produced in Cambodia.

In a press conference held on Wednesday in Phnom Penh, Thomas Magyar, a project manager for the planned movie, and Tony Schiena, a project coordinator and a Hollywood star said the film they had planned to produce will be named as "Great Khmer Empire."

They said the film might cost approximately 70 million U.S. dollars and it will need about three years to make it, saying the large time span will be caused by the consultations with Cambodian government and historians on accuracy of the history as well as the script writing.

Both Tony Schiena and Thomas Magyar said, to date, they are looking at several famous movies stars such as Jet Li, Chinese action star, Angelina Jolie, an American movie actress, John Cena, world's famous wrester and South Korean movie actress Song Hye Kyo among others.

The movie will focus on history of Cambodia, especially, during the glorious period in 11th and 12th century under the King Jayavarman the VII, who until today, considered as the great King of Cambodia and who finished up the building of Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia.

Angelina Jolie adopted a Cambodian son and was granted a Cambodian citizenship.

She was also a star in the famous movie titled "Tomb Raider" which some parts of the episodes were also shot in Siem Reap province where many temples including Angkor Wat Temple are located in.

No it's not along Chroy Changva area, it's along (Lower Mekong river) from Chba Ampov to Kien Svay, by pump the sands to fill the lossing area the peoples there call it as (Chrang Baak)=(broken shore)

And the project area now belong to government because it's became river already since every year that shore always break by river's wave.

Hope you understand what I mean.

Work on $5 billion Chinese tourism project begins

Friday, 01 October 2010 15:01 Soeun Say


CONSTRUCTION has begun at a much-touted US$5 billion Chinese tourism development project in Koh Kong, according to government officials.

Sun Dara, deputy governor of Koh Kong province, said yesterday that the Chinese Union Development Group Co, which saw its investment approved by the government in early 2009, began building last month.

The project, which covers 36,000 hectares of land in Botum Sakor and Kiri Sakor districts, consists of five developments, including an airport, a port, a golf course, an eco-tourism site and a large commercial area with residential living, hotels, restaurants and retail stores.

“They have started building a port and roads, and they are preparing the infrastructure to build a residential building and office building in Kiri Sakor district,” Sun Dara said.

“We are very happy that they are investing in the tourism sector. It will create more jobs for the locals and boost the provincial economy.”

Lao Tip Seiha, Ministry of Land Management construction department director, said the technical plans for the residential and office buildings were still pending construction approval, which would come “as soon as possible”. A land dispute surrounding the project, officials said, was close to being resolved.

Cheng Che, governor of Kiri Sakor district, said yesterday that in Kiri Sakor district, seven villages with 600 families were affected by the development but that the company was close to resolving compensation.

“There are more than 20 families [for whom compensation for their land] is still unresolved because they are asking for higher costs following market prices,” he said.

Union Development Group managing director, Ji Jian Hua, could not be reached for comment, and the head of marketing, Wang Chao, declined to confirm any information.

Sun Dara said the company had allowed for up to 25 years for the development’s completion, but he doubted it would take that long.


Good news! I admire Chinese projects because they work fast and get things done not like other foreigners!

Can Koh Kong be the next tourist Hot Spot in Cambodia!
