A total of 79 casino licenses have now been issued in Cambodia’s gaming sector, with most of the new investment directed to Preah Sihanouk province, a government official said on Wednesday, Phnom Penh Post reports.
Ros Phirun, deputy director of the finance industry department at the Ministry of Economy and Finance said that most of the country’s casinos were concentrated along the country’s borders to attract gamblers from neighboring countries.
“Casino companies continue to flow into Cambodia with a marked increase in Chinese-owned casino operations recently,” he said.
