Tourism Ministry officials held a meeting yesterday to discuss a project to develop a tourist port in Kampot province and a planned drainage system for Kep’s Crab Market – two tourism infrastructure projects backed by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Tourism Minister Thong Khon recommended that the port’s buildings be designed in traditional Khmer style and based on eco-friendly principles, while the drainage system should adhere to Japanese technical specifications.

The two projects are due to begin in 2017 and be completed two years later.
