Planned Multimillion-Dollar Sugar Plantation Suspended

Mong Reththy Group has suspended a $115 million sugar plantation project that has been three years in the works, CPP Senator Mong Reththy said yesterday. According to Mr Reththy, the suspension is due to “internal” issues facing the French partner in the project, Groupe Sucres & Denrees, more commonly known as Sucden. Mr Reththy would not elaborate on the reasons for the suspension of the planned 10,000-hectare sugar plantation in Stung Treng province’s Siem Pang district.
