Cambodia Closer To Proper Port Regulation
Ministry of Public Works Transport and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) recently organized a workshop to gather all representatives from the public and private sectors to share their views about the law implementation, reported by Agence Kampuchea Presse (AKP).

JICA acts as an advisor to the Cambodian government about the drafting of the proposed law. The workshop represents an important step for the Kingdom to regulate the law in proper within its ports.

The lack of Port Law had resulted a hindrance to the development of Cambodia’s ports. The Kingdom has PAS, sole deep-water seaport, and a few other river ports in Phnom Penh, Takeo, and Kampong Cham. New seaports in the provinces of Kep, Kampot, and Koh Kong are in the pipeline. The ports had been classified as one of the important segment to support the development of Cambodia.

The propose law would put in place in order to improve the audit standards and management practices for all Cambodia’s port.

Anthony Galliano, CEO of Cambodia Investment Management (CIM), one of the leading business consultancy firms in the Kingdom, hopes the effort will be successful for this time round as
been a stop and go effort supported by JICA, evolving from the report ‘The Study on the Master Plan for Maritime and Port Sectors’ in 2007 to the proposed drafting of new laws to improve audit standards and management practices for all Cambodian ports in 2009.

The study will looked at the regulatory deficiencies in the Kingdom’s maritime sector, particularly its ports, and proposed ways to address them by way of legislation.

He hope that the latest endeavor will come to fruition and address the essential regulatory and legal frameworks for the Kingdom’s ports, especially security arrangements for ships, ports, and government agencies.
