He pointed out that, as an important participant and practitioner of the Belt and Road construction, China Road and Bridge has undertaken many exemplary and benchmarking high-quality projects in various modes. China Road and Bridge is an important participant in Cambodia's infrastructure construction.

On October 13, 2016, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen witnessed the signing of the Golden Port Expressway project.

On June 21, 2022, the main line of the project was completed, and the trial operation will begin in October. As an investor, builder and future operator of the Jingang Expressway, China Road and Bridge is very honored to witness the opening of the Cambodian Expressway era together with the Cambodian people.

Wang Lijun emphasized that CRBC has always adhered to compliant operations in Cambodia, promoted green construction, actively fulfilled social responsibilities, provided local jobs and improved the skills of local employees. Up to now, CRBC has directly employed more than 30,000 local laborers.
