Tourism: Expert committee to be formed

Tourism
THE government will establish a National Tourism Expert Committee in order to boost the quality of the tourism industry, a government official told The Post yesterday.

Neb Samuoth, deputy director general of Ministry of Tourism, said the plenary Council of Ministers adopted a draft sub-decree on Friday, establishing the new committee in response to an agreement signed among members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations in January 2009.

“We established the Tourism Expert National Committee because we want to improve and strengthen the quality [of] Cambodia’s tourism sector,” he said.

Neb Samuoth said the committee would facilitate information-sharing between “tourism experts” of ASEAN members, pushing for the exchange of good policies in the tourism sector to build and develop the knowledge of Cambodian tourism experts and other ASEAN members.

“It’s very useful for those doing business in tourism or for someone who wants to do business in tourism that they can develop their knowledge and skills relating to the sector from other tourism experts,” Ho Vandy, Co-Chairman of the Tourism Working Group of Cambodian Association of Travel Agents, said yesterday.
