Sihanoukville Autonomous Port (PAS) on Monday launched the Project for Capacity Development on Container Terminal Management and Operation Phase 3, under the assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
The Record of Discussion to officially launch the four-year project was signed by H.E. LOU Kim Chhun, Delegate of Royal Government of Cambodia in Charge as Chairman and CEO of PAS, and Ms. KAMEI Haruko, Chief Representative of JICA Cambodia Office.
The commencement of this project is expected to be in early May 2022, according to a joint press release of PAS and JICA.
The Phase 3 project is implemented in line with progress of the on-going Japanese ODA loan project on Sihanoukville Port New Container Terminal Development Project-Phase 1, whose construction is scheduled to complete and put into operation in 2025.
“We strongly hope that effective capacity development on container terminal management and operation through this project together with the construction of new container terminal will contribute to further port development and strengthening the competitiveness of Sihanoukville port,” read the press release.
In consideration of the requirement of efficient operation and management on container terminal at the Sihanoukville Port, JICA has supported PAS on capacity development on port operation and management since 2013.
