Tourism officials in the Kingdom have suggested that the Kuwaiti ambassador should push for direct flights between Cambodia and Kuwait, and invited Kuwaitis to invest in Cambodia’s soaring tourism sector.
Thong Khon, Minister of Tourism, said he had told the Kuwait ambassador during their first meeting in Phnom Penh that Cambodia’s tourism sector has experienced significant growth over the last few years, but this sector still lacked infrastructure such as accommodation.
He said: “We need more and more investment in the tourism sector,” adding that the Cambodian coast became a considerably more attractive site for tourism after the coast became a full member of the World’s Most Beautiful Bays club.
He said that despite that, provinces along the coastal still lack accommodation.
“More opportunity will come, so we need more investment for this sector,” he added.
Kuwait ambassador Dheara Naser Al-Tuwaijri said he visited the minister to seek the opportunity to implement a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2009.
