HONG KONG (Reuters) – China’s first major silk fabric manufacturing facility in Cambodia will open next month, with the factory expected to double the number of employees and boost the exports of the Southeast Asian nation, officials said.
The plant, called Silk Express, will employ about 400 workers and double the capacity to more than 500,000 tonnes per year, a government official said.
More: The factory will make fabrics that are a “gold standard” for Hong Kong, the official said, declining to be named due to regulations.
Cambodia was the world’s second-largest silk producer after China, which is one of the world two biggest silk exporters.
The country has also become the world leader in the production of silk, with a recent surge in demand fueled by an economic downturn and a global pandemic.
The Silk Express factory is expected to produce about 70 percent of the silk needed to be a “global standard” in Hong Kong by 2019, according to the official, who declined to be identified because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
The government has invested about $1 billion in the country in the past decade to boost the local industry, with $1.7 billion already earmarked for expansion.
