The Mirror, Vol. 12, No. 558

“Samdech Akkak Moha Senapadei Dekchor Hun Sen, the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, received Mr. Lee Sang-Sun, the president of an energy technology company from the Republic of Korea on the morning of 28 April 2008 at his house in Takhmao, Kandal.

“Samdech Prime Minister’s advisor H.E Om Yentieng told reporters after the meeting that Mr. Lee Sang-Sun told Samdech Prime Minister about the projects and the study of iron minerals for which his company has received a license from the Ministry of Industry, Mines, and Energy, and he also asked Samdech Prime Minister for land concessions to facilitate investments in bio-energy.

“Regarding iron mine investment, Samdech Prime Minister asked the company to continue to study cautiously before dealing with big projects, such as the creation of an iron foundry or big investments in the future.

“As for the investment in energy, Samdech also encouraged and advised to check clearly the location in order that the relevant ministries, such as the Ministry of Agriculture, can check and give their opinion about which areas should be preserved [for agriculture] and which areas should be encouraged for investments.

“Samdech Prime Minister also encouraged the company to check the possibility to produce bio-electricity by using rice straw, corn husks and stalks, and other waste. The first advantage would be that we get electricity for rural areas, and the second advantage would be that we can create more income for farmers from what they throw away.

“Samdech also suggested that the company might make detailed plans on transportation and about storehouses.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.7, #1627, 29.4.2008
