The Ministry of Economy and Finance chaired a virtual meeting with the Urban Planning and Design Institute of Shenzhen (UPDIS) to discuss the master plan for the development of Preah Sihanouk Province as a model, multi-purpose special economic zone.
Minister Delegate to the Prime Minister and Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Economy and Finance Vongsey Visoth said the meeting examined the progress of the master plan, prepared by the working group of UPDIS, that aims to turn Sihanoukville into a smart city with the state-of-the-art technology.
Once completed, it will be a vibrant commercial, services and logistics hub in Asean and connect with regional and global production and supply chains, besides being a green city as well.
He said the ambitious master plan could face many challenges in its implementation as it aims to transform this area into a modern city in line with the vision of Cambodia to achieve the status of a high middle-income country by 2030 and high-income country by 2050.
The master plan can turn Sihanoukville into a national gateway and engine for development. It can also be a regional financial and trade centre, he added.
