The Cambodian government has earmarked a 489-hectare area within Koh Rong National Park for development by Emario Shonan Marine Corporation and U. Property Management. This progressive initiative, as outlined in Sub-Decree No. 69 dated March 31, 2023, signifies the nation’s commitment to responsible land utilization in Koh Rong Samloem Village, Sangkat Koh Rong Samloem, Koh Rong City, Sihanoukville Province.
