Kerry Worldbridge Logistics’ special economic zone began operating yesterday, with promises of boosting the high-end technology industry. The zone, a joint venture between Hong Kong-listed Kerry Logistic Network Ltd and Worldbridge International, said the SEZ will be a hub for foreign manufacturing firms. Sear Rithy, president of the board of directors at Kerry Worldbridge Logistics said seven foreign companies have signed contracts to invest in the zone. “The companies mainly produce electronic devices, machinery and high-value added products,” Mr Rithy said. Located next to National Road 2 in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district, the SEZ covers 63 hectares of land and includes a custom bonded warehouse and business exhibition building.
