Cambodia Asks China to Construct International Standard Hospital in Kandal Province
AKP Phnom Penh, June 25, 2020 --
Cambodia has asked the Government of China, through the China Foundation for Peace and Development (CFPD), to construct an international standard hospital in Kandal province.
The request was made by H.E. Mrs. Yuok Sambath, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Health during a meeting with Mr. Zhang Yaowu, Head of CFPD’s Bureau here in Phnom Penh on Tuesday.
The construction of hospital in the province will ease health service provision, especially for passengers travelling to Cambodia once the construction of a new Phnom Penh International Airport is finished by 2023, continued H.E. Mrs. Yuok Sambath.
The secretary of state spoke highly of CFPD’s cooperation, especially for the prevention of Covid-19 spread in the country.
From his end, Mr. Zhang Yaowu pledged to continue the foundation’s missions in Cambodia and forward H.E. Mrs. Yuok Sambath’s proposal for further discussion and decision making.
