Kampong Speu, the Most Attractive Province for Garment and Textile Factories

Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, has noted that Kampong Speu province, some 48 kilometres west of Phnom Penh capital, has the highest number of workers and factories.

The Premier made the remarks this morning at a get-together with almost 20,000 workers and employees from 17 factories and enterprises in Chbar Mon city, Kampong Speu province.

According to Samdech Techo Hun Sen, there are about 225 factories and enterprises in the province, employing 98,213 workers and employees with a total wage of over US$220 million annually.

After the end of the civil war thanks to the Win Win Policy set forth by Samdech Techo Hun Sen, Kampong Speu became a potential province for economic activities, mainly light-manufacturing and agro-industry.
