The Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen inaugurated a newly built cement factory in Kampot province on Thursday last week, making the total number of cement plants in Cambodia to five, according to a post on his official Facebook page.

The new cement plant is called the Thai Boon Roong Cement Factory invested by a Cambodian conglomerate Thai Boon Roong Group. It sits on nearly 700 hectares of land located in Dangtong district’s Laang commune, Kampot province. The new cement factory is expected to create up to 335 permanent jobs, 90 percent of which are local employees, the post adds.

According to a report by Xinhua News, the new cement factory cost $110 million to build. It can produce up to 2500 tonnes of cement a day and up to nearly 1 million tonnes a year. Together with four other factories, three of which are located in Kampot, and one in the northwestern part of Battambang, can collectively produce up to 8 million tonnes of cement per year.
