Cambodian Federation of Unions President Rong Chhun called on Thursday for transport operators to keep fares low during Khmer new Year. “I hope that all taxi drivers and bus companies will take part in facilitating the journey to celebrate Khmer New Year festival for all workers ... by not increasing the transportation price,” he said.
