Cambodian telecommunications company EMAXX signed a contract with China's Huawei, a global ICT solutions provider, on Wednesday in order to develop EMAXX's 4G network in Cambodia.

The contract was inked between Ai Min, chief executive officer of EMAXX, and Weng Kefeng, deputy general manager of Huawei Technologies-Cambodia, at the presence of Kan Channmeta, Secretary of State at the Cambodian Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications, and Li Zhigong, political councilor of the Chinese Embassy to Cambodia. 

Under the contract, Huawei will build 4G based stations in eight Cambodian cities, according to a press statement after the signing ceremony. The whole project is estimated to take two years to be accomplished.

"The project is aimed to build a national communication and information network in Cambodia, consisting of the construction of Internet Data Center (IDC) with multiple international gateways and national fiber telecom backbone network with 400 Gb/s," said the statement. "When accomplished, the whole network will serve 90 % population of the eight Cambodian cities."

Li Zhigong said China was pleased to see more and more Chinese companies making investment in Cambodia, which is crucial to help further enhance bilateral ties between the two countries.
