MONDOLKIRI, Cambodia, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Cambodia on Tuesday inaugurated a 127-kilometer China-funded road here, aiming at developing eco-tourism in Cambodia's far northeastern provinces.

The inaugurated national road No. 76 stretches from Kratie province's Snuol district to Mondolkiri province's Sen Monorom city.

The inauguration was presided over by Prime Minister Hun Sen and Pan Guangxue, Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia, and was also attended by top government officials, diplomatic corps, some 6,000 local people.

Speaking at the inauguration, Hun Sen said the construction of the road was begun in February 2007 by the China Road and Bridge Corporation as a cost of about 52 million U.S. dollars under the soft loan from the Chinese government. "The road not only contributes to the development of Cambodia' s eco-tourism provinces, it also helps develop the triangle development area with Vietnam and Laos," he said. "On behalf of the government of Cambodia and Cambodian people, I'd like to express sincere thanks to the government of China and its people for providing both grants and loans to Cambodia for social and economic development", said the premier. "Today's achievements come from the close and sincere cooperation between Cambodia and China,"he said.

Pan Guangxue said that the road inauguration was a new symbol of good cooperation between China and Cambodia. "We believe that the road will help boost economic development and poverty reduction in Cambodia's eastern provinces,"he said. "China will still continue supporting Cambodia in infrastructure development projects."
