Projection: Phnom Penh To House 4 Million Dwellers by 2030

Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction has projected that Phnom Penh will be home to four million people by 2030.

The science-based demographic projection also underlined that the life style of the capital's dwellers will be modernised � thanks to increasingly accessible services by more middle class.

At the same time, the outlook also touched in implications of the urbanisation � including but not limited to traffic and transport issues.

Only 4.5 million Cambodians or roughly 27 percent of the whole population were living in the capital, cities and towns in 2014 � added the projection; the urban population will increase to almost 8 percent or 44 percent of the population in 20130.
