Bus association launched

THE Cambodia Bus Association (CAMBA) was established Monday to give stakeholders a single voice in government, in a bid to improve services and curb unfair competition. Speaking at a launch event at the capital’s Phnom Penh Hotel, Phann Sopheak, the new elected president of CAMBA’s board of directors and the manager of Capitol Tour company, said that CAMBA had been established in the response to a need for bus operators to discuss difficulties facing the sector, to share information and talk about border issues. The new organisation comprises of representatives from 10 of the country’s 20 bus companies. It was licenced by the Ministry of Interior in late April. Tram Eav Toek, Minister of Ministry of Public Work and Transportation, who presided over the launch ceremony, welcomed the new representative body and said it was a good sign for the industry. He highlighted that demand for bus travel is increasing, which in turn heightens issues of price dumping and a lack of respect for traffic laws.
