Cambodia Plans Improvement of Thailand and Viet Nam Border Gate Facilities

A press release from the Royal Government of Cambodia’s Ministry of Economy and Finance announced plans to improve facilities at border gates with Thailand and Viet Nam.   

Cambodia’s border crossing points with Thailand and Vietnam are crowded with traffic of cross-border transport and tourists. The country wants to develop the necessary infrastructure to manage this traffic flow to ease cross-border transport and boost trade activities.

The Economic and Financial Policy Committee, chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Aun Pornmoniroth, approved the proposal. 

The Government will focus on renovating infrastructure at the Bavet (Cambodia)-Moc Bai (Viet Nam) international border checkpoint in Svay Rieng province in Cambodia. They also plan to implement a single window service in cooperation with Vietnamese officials. 

At the Thailand border, Cambodia wants to reach an agreement to put the new Stung Bot (Cambodia)-Ban Nong Ian (Thailand) international border gate into temporary operation at the soonest possible time.
