A South Korean company to help improve Cambodia’s public transport network

PHNOM PENH: South Korea-based company, Booyoung Group, will help Cambodia improve its public bus services through a donation of 1,000 more buses.

The assistance was announced by Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo at a graduation ceremony of over 2,300 students of the National Institute of Education in Phnom Penh this morning.

The company has so far provided 200 buses to Phnom Penh Municipal Hall which contributed to providing free-of-charge services for some 50,000 passengers during the recent Khmer New Year celebrations, he recalled.

Booyoung Group suggested arranging the 1,000 buses to provinces to contribute to reducing travel costs, traffic jams, and road accidents, the Premier added.

The company affirmed that it will not take its profit out of Cambodia, but help expand jobs for Cambodians and enhance social contribution.

Samdech Techo Hun Sen said he also agreed with the company's request to open a health university in Phnom Penh, as we cannot rely only on the state university.
