Riverfront Group Meets to Plan Future

T he Riverfront Promotion Council held its inaugural meeting September 15 with the

aim of boosting the city-strip of the Tonle Sap foreshore as a tourist and recreation

zone.

RPC convenor, Riverside Bistro and Bar proprietor, Andreas Stanke, said Phnom Penh

was the only South-east Asian city with frontage to two rivers, the Mekong and the

Tonle Sap.

Stanke said tourist attractions such as the Royal Palace, the National Museum and

the Silver Pagoda were all within easy reach of the river front which was a long

way off developing its full potential.

He said the mandate of the RPC was to bring waterfront business together so it could

more effectively lobby authorities toward the development of the area as a major

tourist and recreation centre
