Consulting Services for Greater Mekong Subregion Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project
(Individual International and National Consultants)
The Kingdom of Cambodia (Cambodia) has received a loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) towards the costs of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) Tourism Infrastructure for Inclusive Growth Project (the project).

The Ministry of Tourism now invites expressions of interest (EOI) from eligible individuals from ADB member countries for the provision of consulting services to assist in the implementation of the project.
