Phnom Penh (FN), March 22 – The Royal Government of Cambodia has spent USD 100 million for the affected communities resulted from the development of infrastructure projects nationwide, according to Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen.

“Just the first three months of 2019, I already spent USD 100 million for affected communities as compensations,” Prime Minister addressed Friday at the groundbreaking ceremony of Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville Expressway, which he co-chaired, with Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Kong Xuanyou in Kompong Speu province.
