Cambodia has in total 105 ports, of which 78 are river ports located along the Mekong, Tonle Sap, Tonle Basac and in provinces, and 27 others are sea ports.
The figures were shared by the Ministry of Public Works and Transports (MPWT), adding that the ports, run by both the government and private companies, are divided into trade, industrial, tourism and oil port and so on.
Those ports have been playing a key role in promoting trade activities to develop national, regional and international economy, it added.
On July 26, the MPWT has organised a meeting to discuss the draft port law to collect more inputs so that it can be comprehensive to serve national benefits.
H.E. Sun Chanthol, Senior Minister and Minister of MPWT, who chaired the virtual meeting, said the port law will play a crucial role in the management and development of port, promotion of national and international trade, order maintenance, facilitation of port services, and environmental protection.
