It is very important for investors like myself to invest in Cambodia because of the stability of the government, Cambodia is very peaceful without any violence, without any major crime, unlike other countries, Cambodian people are very humble, smart, and have a strong working ethic. The labor force is very large, and everyone is eager to learn to improve themselves. Furthermore, the government provides a very good incentive to all Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and full protection to all investors like myself.”
AHNAKOT mentioned that Koh Kong is a paradise of nature and has a great potential for development. In his “AHNAKOT” project, he focuses on the full development of three major sectors: tourism, industry, and agriculture. The “AHNAKOT” project will be Asia’s first largest smart city, including International Finance and Business Center, Luxury and Exclusive Tourism, Eco-tourism and Agri-Tourism, Smart Agriculture, Science, Innovation and Technology, as well the largest 5-Religion center in the word to attract national and international visitors from everywhere to visit, enjoy and relax. The entire city will accommodate between 5 million and 6 million people.
