YAMAHA MOTORCYCLES has announced it is to build a motorcycle production plant in Cambodia.
Yamaha and other companies launched a new company in Phnom Penh on Sunday for the plant, saying it will begin operations in October.
It says the new company will take over operations at Asia Motors' factory and its sales network, adding the company will acquire a large lot in Phnom Penh's special economic zone.
Yamaha says operation in the new factory is expected to reduce costs and time for manufacturing motorcycles.
It will assemble motorcycle parts and components supplied as complete kits of knock-down parts, that have already been assembled for manufacturing in Thailand.
