CB Richard Ellis has seen plans for the Mekong Rail project which will link Singapore with Kunming. The investment project covers Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and China. Infrastructure development in the last 10 years in the Mekong region has reached over US$11 billion.
Cambodia’s railway network is undergoing a rehabilitation at a cost of $140m (USD). The project is being funded by the ADB and OPEC amongst other donors.
The only missing link on the plan is between Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), the projected cost of the link is $1.09bn.
