Tourism officials look to clean up cities

Tourism officials laid down the strategy for cleaning up Cambodian cities by asking nine Phnom Penh districts and 26 other cities to compete in a “clean city” competition, officials said yesterday.

The campaign will focus on environmental management, city beauty, trash management and the establishment of green areas, Tourism Minister Thong Khon said, adding that the effort was related to an ASEAN-wide attempt to better the regions cities.

Ang Kim Eang, president of Cambodia Association of Travel Agents, said the work could be achieved as long as city leaders were committed to the effort, otherwise cleaning up the Kingdom’s cities would be difficult.
