“We are happy to contribute to the development of the local economy because it will create more than 2,000 jobs. We want to stay deeply rooted in Cambodia and we want to be loved the most,” Motoya Okada, president and CEO of Aeon Group, was reported as saying at the groundbreaking ceremony by the Japanese media.

He added that the Japanese company was considering opening other locations in Cambodia.
