International travel company BCD Travel announced last week it is setting up an office in Cambodia, in a partnership with local tour company Tonle Travel.

The BDC Travel Cambodia Office, marks the company’s 18th expansion into the Asia-Pacific region. Growing foreign investment in the Kingdom means increased demand for business travellers, according to a December 1 statement from the firm.

“With the solid economic outlook in Asia, we see great opportunity in continuing to expand our presence throughout the region. This new partnership sends a clear message: As a global player in the business travel market, we’re committed to helping corporate customers and their travellers travel smart and achieve more – wherever they need to be,” Greg O’Neil, president for Asia Pacific for BCD Travel said in the announcement.

Tonle Travel has long been doing business in Cambodia together with BCD, according to Vieng Chivuth, the new managing director of BCD Travel Cambodia, the joint venture with BCD.

“Tonle Travel has been providing the travelling management services for clients through BCD Travel for four years before the venture to establish the official BCD Travel Cambodia,” he Chivuth said on Friday.

“For those companies who practice an anti-corruption policy in their company, they will use our service, as we will provide the details on how their money is being spent,” Chivuth added.
