HLH Agriculture (Cambodia) Co Ltd, a subsidiary of Singapore’s Hong Lai Huat Group Ltd, has announced the inauguration of the mixed-use Cambodia-Singapore Agricultural Hub (CSAH) in northwestern Kampong Speu province, as well as the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF) to help attract foreign players to invest in the project.
Covering 100sq km in Oral district, the CSAH was inaugurated on the night of February 18 at a ceremony attended by many major investors, a considerable portion being from Singapore.
The project was designed by prominent Singaporean architectural firm Swan & Maclaren Architects, which divided the land into 16 distinct areas designated for farming, animal husbandry, animal feed production, private land, shared accommodation, diversified business centres, mining, industry, solar power, construction materials, among others.
HLH Agriculture representative Ryan Ong Jia Ming said the CSAH would be developed in three phases, adding that Swan & Maclaren Architects’ design would help make the project an important area to serve for agriculture, living and doing business.
He said a good part of the hub would also be reserved for open areas, green areas, reservoirs and roads for transportation, transforming it into a “leading eco-agricultural city” in the Kingdom.
“As a Singapore-listed company, Hong Lai Huot Group Limited has many years of experience in the large-scale real estate market and real estate development in Singapore and Cambodia.
“We are committed to bringing high-level skills and expertise to development in Cambodia,” Ong said.
On the occasion of the inauguration, Hong Lai Huat Group and SMF virtually signed an MoU to help increase and enhance the agricultural sector and business investment opportunities in Singapore for the CSAH.
