"Peace and political stability not only provide happiness to our people, but also attract foreign investors to help develop our country," Hun Sen said in a speech during a get-together with thousands of factory workers here.

According to Hun Sen, new investments will create new jobs and the government will continue to attract more investors in order to generate some 300,000 jobs a year for new jobseekers.

"We must continue to stay united to safeguard peace in order to ensure the country's sustainable development," he said.

Official government statements show that Cambodia is scheduled to hold a general election for the 125-seat National Assembly on July 23.

According to the National Election Committee, 18 political parties will contest in the election, which will see more than 9.7 million eligible people casting their ballots.

In the last general election held five years ago, Hun Sen's Cambodian People's Party won all 125 seats in the National Assembly.
