ASEAN member states invested $178 million. Investment into four projects came from Thailand at a total of $84 million, four  projects came from Vietnam with $82.5 million and one project worth $11.5 million from Singapore, the council said.

Local investors invested into fertiliser manufacturing, beverage manufacturing, rice milling, tapioca powder processing, garment factories, hotel and resort development and information technology. Chinese investors put their money into the garment and textile industry and into rice milling, whilst Thailand invested into a footwear factory, clothes manufacturing and also into rice milling. Vietnam invested into beverage manufacturing and rubber plantation and processing, Singapore into the garment and textile industry.

One of the largest individual foreign investors in Cambodia is China’s Hainan Ruijin Investment Holding Group, which plans to invest into rice plantations, cow farms and tourism development, according to a statement by the group’s chairman Pan Xiaoping quoted by China’s Xinhua news agency.
