Laos, Cambodia strengthen collaboration in tourism

The Lao Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism and the Cambodian Ministry of Tourism have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on tourism cooperation.

The signing ceremony took place with the framework of Cambodian Minister Thong Khon’s visit to Laos from March 12-15.

The MoU encourages the travel of the two countries’ people through package tours organised by private companies.

It also seeks to improve the quality of human resources of the sector, and attract more investment to speed up the resumption of tourism activities between the two countries.

The two sides agreed to make it easier for people to drive from Cambodia to Laos and vice versa through simplified immigration procedures at border crossings, especially when travelling from Laos to coastal areas of Cambodia and from Cambodia to tourist attractions in Laos.

They also agreed to push for more flights between popular tourist destinations in Laos and Cambodia.
