South Korea may open Siem Reap consulate

South Korea is preparing to open a new consulate in the northern tourist hub of Siem Reap, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The new mission will complement the work of the nation’s Phnom Penh embassy, serving six provinces in northern Cambodia, Foreign Ministry spokesman Chum Sounry said yesterday.

“In order to enhance their work for investment and the tourism industry, and the increase in economic activity, we have allowed the embassy [of South Korea] to open a consulate, which will possibly in perhaps one or two years expand to a consulate general,” he said.

The new consulate will serve South Korean interests and its nationals in the provinces of Siem Reap, Preah Vihear, Oddar Meanchey, Banteay Meanchey, Battambang and Pailin.

An official at the South Korean Embassy in Phnom Penh yesterday declined to comment on the establishment of the Siem Reap consulate because the country’s ambassador had not yet given the green light for the project.
