Selected Comments at the Opening Construction of a Flood Prevention and Sewage System Improvement in Phnom Penh

… Today, together with HE Shinohara, Ambassador of Japan to Cambodia, and all of our people here, I am pleased to launch the official construction of the second phase of Flood Prevention Dam Project and the Improvement of the Sewage System in Phnom Penh. I would like to take this opportunity to express through HE Shinohara to the people and Government of Japan for their generous assistance to the people of Cambodia as a whole, and to the city dwellers of Phnom Penh in particular. As far as the sewage system is concerned, it is already a second phase project in addition to other projects also provided by Japan, take for instance electricity, water supply, hospital and many other professional centers.
