Selected Impromptu Comments at the Groundbreaking Ceremony to Build the National Road 58 from Poi Pet in Banteay Meanjei to Samraong City in Uddar Meanjei

I am so happy to return to this province for the groundbreaking ceremony to build the 174 Km National Road 58. If I am not mistaken, last year, with HE Bu Jianguo, Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China, I came to the province of Banteay Meanjei on March 10, 2014 to put into official use the National Road 59 linking the National Road 5 to the province of Pailin. This means that a year ago we put into official use a 100 Km road and now we are building another 174 Km road today. I am so proud of the development in the Kingdom of Cambodia despites some obstacles. It is normal for a country in development that there are some peculiar issues. I am sure the Cambodian people will come up with judgment of what has been happening.
