Cambodia has signed a bilateral air service agreement with Mongolia that could pave the way for direct flights and increased tourist traffic between the two Asian countries, and open opportunities for investment, a government official said on Thursday.
Sinn Chanserey Vutha, spokesman for the State Civil Aviation Secretariat, said the agreement was an international obligation for bilateral air service and creates more opportunity for investors and tourists.
“If an investor sees this as a potential investment on both sides, they can take advantage of it,” Vutha said. “The agreement would also attract more Mongolian tourists to visit Angkor Wat and our beaches, as Mongolia has no coastline.”
The number of Mongolians visiting Cambodia remains extremely low, with less than 500 visiting the Kingdom last year, according to Tourism Ministry statistics.
