Cambodia signs MoU with Andhra Pradesh to promote tourism


To promote tourism and facilitate mutual cooperation, Cambodia Association of Travel Agents (CATA) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Tours and Travels Association of Andhra Pradesh (TTAA).

President of TTAA, K Vijay Mohan and CATA’ Phav Proeun signed the MoU in Siem Reap at the Angkor Wat temple.

The partnership aims to promote cross tourism between Cambodia and Andhra Pradesh. TTAA will promote Cambodia and CATA will focus on Andhra Pradesh as well as Visakhapatnam and the Buddhist Circuit in the state.

Phav Proeun of CATA said, “This MoU is a big step forward as we have never entered into any sort of similar MoU with any association so far. We shall see how we can promote Buddhist packages in the state of Andhra Pradesh and we look forward to working closely with TTAA.”

“About 95% of Cambodians are Buddhists. The ethnic Khmers, who constitute about 90% of the Cambodian population, practise Theravada Buddhism. It is also the official state religion since the 15th century,” stated Vijay Mohan. He also added that as Cambodia and Vizag are well connected via Bangkok by Thai Air Asia, Malaysia by AirAsia and Singapore by SilkAir, it would be very easy to promote tourism between the two countries.
