Investment Information
I. Introduction to the Municipality
Phnom Penh was built in 1934 during the reign of King Preah Ponhea Yat. It is the last among the most important historical
capital cities of Cambodia, namely Angkor Borei, Baphnom, Kohker, Angkor, Longvek and Uddong. Phnom Penh was named
after the hill called Wat Phnom Daun Penh, also presently known as Wat Phnom. The city is located west of the Chaktomuk River,
Upper and Lower Mekong Rivers, Basac River and Tonlesap River.
Since the country achieved peace, the capital city has played a role as the commercial, political and cultural hub of the
Kingdom. Recent, stable economic growth has accelerated the urbanization of the city as wells as improved living condition for its
people. City infrastructure, such as roads and sewerage has been rehabilitated and new hotels and office buildings including a 30
story business center have been constructed in the downtown area. As a result, Phnom Penh has been transformed into a
cosmopolitan city with total population of nearly 2 million.
Phnom Penh is also the gateway for many tourists coming to see sites in the rest of the country such as the temples of
Angkor, a world heritage site, in the west, the beaches of the southern coast, and the indigenous peoples of the northern provinces.
Phnom Penh is expected to be the center of international business for ASEAN, with its well developed transportation
infrastructure such as international airport, international river port and main National Roads, and industrial development areas
such as the Phnom Penh SEZ.
