The Government of China approved a grant of around USD44 million to fund the upgrade of Cambodia’s existing rail infrastructure. This includes the upgradation of the 382-km-long Phnom Penh–Poipet Rail Line to a standard-gauge electrified line operating at a speed of 160 km/hr; the development of a light rail line from Siem Reap to the international airport at Chickreng and a feasibility study for the proposed Phnom Penh Metro.

Additionally, the two governments will also increase cooperation in production capacity and energy among others.
