According to a CDC’s press release, the newly approved projects belong to J-Star Garment (Cambodia) Co., Ltd. and K5 Industrial Co., Ltd.
The first company will invest US$5.8 million in the creation of a garment factory in Moha Russey commune, Korng Pisey district, Kampong Speu province, while the second will inject US$5.5 million in the establishment of a belt and bag factory in Takhmao town of Kandal province, the CDC pointed out.
