According to Chen Qiufa, secretary of the Communist Party of China and the Liaoning provincial governor, Liaoning province in northeastern China is seeking Cambodia's status as Cambodia's province with Cambodia's Sihanouk province.
A plan to connect the provinces through sisterhood was unveiled yesterday by Quifa, who is currently leading a Chinese delegation in the meeting with Pan Sorasak, Minister of Commerce of Cambodia.
"The partnership will play a crucial role in developing the manufacturing sector and tightening ties between provinces," he said. He added that as part of sisterhood, a new special economic zone will be built - Liaoning - Cambodia.
Quifa asked the minister's support for the project, adding that it was in line with the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) initiative.
Sorasak pledged to support the project. "It will help create more jobs and increase incomes for residents, while promoting the development of the province," he said.
According to the latest World Bank report, Preah Sihanouk province is at the heart of the country's construction boom, financed largely by investment from China.
Last year, the city of Taizhou in Jiangsu province sought a sisterhood with Svay Rieng along the border with Vietnam.
