On December 9, 2021, Hun Sen, Prime Minister of Cambodia, inspected the New Phnom Penh International Airport Project, which was built by Shanghai Geoharbour Construction Group. With its technical advantages and management experience, Geoharbour became the constructor for the airport foundation treatment designated by the owner. This is another major international airport construction project in which Geoharbour has participated after Shanghai Pudong International Airport, Singapore Changi Airport, Jazan Airport in Saudi Arabia, Jakarta International Airport in Indonesia, and Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport in Thailand.
The New Phnom Penh International Airport is located in Kandal and Takéo of Cambodia, with a total investment of USD 1.5 billion. Covering an area of 2,600 hectares, the New Phnom Penh International Airport Project is mainly designed to serve the SEA Games in 2023. The construction of the new airport will not only boost the development of Cambodia’s tourism industry and attract more international tourists and investors, but also connect the major economic circles, make business and cargo transportation faster and more convenient, and further drive the growth of related industries.
