MoT’s Initiative to Promote Tourism Quality across Cambodia

Ministry of Tourism is initiating a competition of clean tourist sites with quality services in order to promote tourism service provision across Cambodia to the next level, according to local media report.

Minister of Tourism H.E. Thong Khon was cited in the source saying that the challenge was introduced in the past but its scope was not as broad.

Driven by the regional tourism standard, the judgement for the best tourism sites will look into the cleanliness, security and quality of foods served and decoration as well as sanitation of the locations.

H.E. Thong Khon encouraged competent officials and local authorities to be creative especially in identifying their unique selling point and working with private groups to push the best out of their respective area.

In terms of capacity building, he added, they can propose to the Ministry of Tourism for one-or-two-month study trip or beyond.

The result of the challenge, according to the same source, will be announced in November this year.
