Job creation summary
  • The pier and associated facilities will create 2,500 tourism-related jobs through expanded land and sea transportation services, customs and immigration facilities, and expansion of other tourism services in Kampot. Residents of the commune Chum Kriel with a population of 5,282 will benefit from new tourism-related economic opportunities. The salt farmers that live along the access road will benefit from more affordable and reliable transportation options.
