PHNOM PENH -- The construction work on a China-funded national stadium here is currently halfway towards completion, Thong Khon, president of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia, said on Sunday.

The stadium is being developed by the China State Construction Engineering Corporation (CSCEC) under the Chinese aid of 1.1 billion Chinese yuan (about 160 million US dollars).

"To date, about 50 percent of the project has been finished and it is expected that the whole project will be completed by the end of 2020," he said at a ceremony marking the completion of the stadium's main structures.

Thong Khon, who is also the minister of tourism, added that some 70 percent of the stadium's 60,000 seats had already been installed and will be completely built by July this year.

Meanwhile, the minister encouraged everyone involved in the project to remain committed so that the construction would be finished within the scheduled time.
