New border crossing to open at Preah Vihear

Cambodia and Thailand will open another permanent border crossing between Preah Vihear province and Thailand’s Ubon Ratchathani province on Wednesday, following a meeting earlier this month between Prime Minister Hun Sen and Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Sinawatra.

An Ses, the new permanent border crossing, is primarily used for the trade of agricultural products. Cambodian people usually import products from Thailand through the crossing, and it used to open on every Tuesday and Thursday, said Sar Thavy, deputy governor of Preah Vihear province.

“We will also consider further opening of border crossings for the interest of the people in both countries,” Hun Sen said after his meeting.

Cambodia and Thailand currently have 23 permanent border crossings, said Touch Ra, deputy director of Oddar Meanchey’s Chong Sa Ngam border crossing.

The two countries are also considering opening more border crossings in Oddar Meanchey province, Sar Thavy said.
