Garment maker eyes economic zone in Cambodia

The private company HOdo Group Co Ltd, a textile and garment company in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, is looking to expand its presence in Sihanoukville, a province in southern Cambodia, in an attempt to diversify its business. Zhou Haijiang, president of the company, said it has made hefty investments since 2007 to establish the Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone in the Prey Nob district. The project now occupies three square kilometers and is expected to be eventually expanded to 11 sq km. The total investment in the zone is to reach $320 million, Zhou said.
