Local Financial and Human Resource

My wife and I are so happy to be able to join all of you in this inauguration ceremony of the Stoeng Meanjei overpasses, the third site in the city where we build overpasses to improve traffic. I am so pleased to have been here in a space of one year in between – on 26 November 2013 to review the construction and today for the inauguration. I was here that time to put into official use parts of the overpasses for the demand of traffic and that were not hindering the remaining construction. At the time, there was news that I already ran out of the country. Many of the press people here could have remembered that Hun Sen was standing right here. Today, with all of the Buddhist monks, followers, Excellencies, Ladies and our compatriots, we put into official use this major achievement.
