AKP Phnom Penh, March 30, 2021 --
Feasibility study on the new US$60-million domestic airport in Mondulkiri province has been concluded, according to the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation.
The report was presented in a meeting held here on Mar. 30 under the chairmanship of H.E. Mao Havannall, Minister in charge of the State Secretariat of Civil Aviation.
H.E. Mao Havannall recommended two main points: the study shall include more tourism and economic development activities in accordance with the policy of the Ministry of Tourism and the study shall also include the strategic plan to attract more airlines to fly to that area. For example, the firm should come up with more creative tourist destination development or any other investment projects.
