Mr. Sin Chan Sereyvutha confirmed that, in fact, the construction of this airport has been completed, but must be tested and the application for the certificate takes 6 months from the construction. He added that the normal test is to take the aircraft to test, the equipment to test and test tool that is equipped with the aircraft.
Dara Sakor International Airport, valued at about $350 million, was developed by the Chinese firm Tianjin Union Development Group (UDG), which has received an economic concession from the Cambodian government to build an airport and develop other areas in Botum Sakor district, Koh Kong province, near the Gulf of Thailand.
