Sin-tax to pay for new street lights

Revenues from a new 3 percent tax on imported alcohol and cigarettes will fund

street lights, Finance Minister Keat Chhon is reported as saying.

He said the government expects to collect about 1.6 billion riel annually from the

tax, which took effect on Sep 1.

The revenue would be used to construct street lights in Phnom Penh and major towns

around the country.
