It will push for direct flights between the countries possibly starting with charters.

Tourism services, particularly in the coastal provinces, will be improved targeting Russian tourists.

Low-cost trips for travel agents, or consultants from Russia, will be organised to introduce destinations particularly beach resorts.

Business matching forums between Russian investors and their counterparts in Cambodia will be held to attract potential tourist projects related to land and marine transport, hotels and attractions.

Sihanoukville province is viewed as an attractive destination for Russians tourists and now that Sihanoukville International Airport’s terminal building and runway are being expanded, more airlines will consider flights.
