The Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone (SSEZ) has reported export growth of 26.52 percent in 2020, a significant achievement in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The value of goods exported from the SSEZ was $1.556 billion, according to the report obtained by Khmer Times on Friday. The zone’s main products are clothes, electronic devices, bags, construction materials and furniture.
In a congratulatory message to SSEZ’s president Chen Jiangan sent January26, Prime Minister Hun Sen welcomed and supported innovative ideas to mobilize more investment accelerating the development of the Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone.
“The Royal Government of Cambodia has always recognized that the private sector is a necessary partner [for government and they] must complement each other in contributing to the growth of the national economy,” said the prime minister.
Established in 2008, the 1,113-hectare SSEZ is situated about 13 km from the Sihanoukville Autonomous Port in southwestern Cambodia’s Preah Sihanouk province.
