A company based in China’s southern province of Guangdong opened a 2-hectare market for building and construction materials near the Preah Monivong Bridge in Phnom Penh on Saturday, according to a report by online Chinese news site Commercial News.

The DEFA Building Materials Market has space for up to 200 foreign and domestic suppliers of construction and building materials and aims to be a one-stop shop for the booming construction sector, DEFA Chairman Lin Shaojie was quoted as saying.

He added that the market aims to provide construction companies, interior designers and architects with a streamlined supply chain while suppliers can rent warehousing facilities at a reasonable cost.
