PATA, BBC Pledge to Support Cambodia’s Tourism Reopening

The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) and the British national broadcaster BBC have pledged to support Cambodia's tourism reopening plan and help promote the information.

The pledge was made in a recent interview with Cambodia's Ministry of Tourism via Zoom on "Destination Insights Series" organised by PATA in collaboration with BBC, focusing on the current trend during the crisis of COVID-19 and tourism recovery.

In the interview with BBC, H.E. Thong Rathasak, Director General of Tourism Development and International Cooperation of the Ministry of Tourism, underlined the Royal Government's effort in supporting tourism businesses and workers, and preparing a strategic framework for a safe reopening of tourism in the country.

The Cambodia's tourism reopening plan will be implemented in late 2021 and will pay a prime attention on people's health and public safety in cooperation with all concerned authorities and stakeholders.

The Royal Government has introduced series of COVID-19 response and containment measures factoring in all implicated areas, and is pushing hard to build the immunity through strategic vaccination campaigns.
