Prime Minister Hun Sen announced yesterday that Cambodia is going to build a new international airport in Phnom Penh, in response to the rising number of passengers received every year. The Kingdom is expected to get seven million tourists a year by 2020. The initial concept was made by the Premier during the official launch of the 2012-2020 Tourism Development Strategic Plan at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh, where Hun Sen said Cambodia is aiming to receive around 10 million tourists by 2020. He added that the existing airport is quite small. … Hun Sen did not disclose the location of the future airport for fear of creating a wave of people attempting to buy land around any proposed site. … The Premier also said the government was making good progress on building a new international airport in Siem Reap (NSRIA).
