Cambodia opens China-Funded military garage
Added On February 17, 2017
A China-funded military automobile repair shop was inaugurated in Cambodia on Wednesday after a two-year construction.
Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Gen. Tea Banh and Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Xiong Bo jointly unveiled the garage at the Trucking Battalion No. 99 on the outskirts of Phnom Penh.
According to Gen. Tea Banh, the facility was well-equipped with the latest technology, and will prove crucial for maintaining and repairing vehicles for the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF).
Gen. Tea Banh said this is a new testament to the fruitful relations and cooperation between Cambodia and China...
...adding that the government and people of Cambodia will forever remember China's great support to Cambodia's socio-economic development.
In response, the Ambassador Xiong Bo said the new achievement was born from the friendly relations and cooperation between the Chinese People's Liberation Army and the RCAF.
During a visit to Cambodia in May 2014, Xu Qiliang, Vice-Chairman of China's Central Military Commission, agreed to the country's request to help build the garage.
The 500-square-meter garage will now be put to use, and will increase the capacity of maintenance and repairs for military cars.
