According to World Bank, The Kingdom of Cambodia will enjoy a robust economic growth in 2016 of more than 7%, thanks in no small part to the recent growth in tourism sector.
Prime Minister of Cambodia-Academician Samdech HUN SEN had opted for a development based on tourism growth and obtained an incredible success as the Kingdom was elected as WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION FOR 2016 and obtained a 6,9% growth according to World Bank.
The arrivals in the Kingdom are at a historic high in 2016.
In 2015 the numbers of tourists and investment has slow down, but in 2016 as the country was elected WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION and H.E. Prime Minister of Cambodia – Samdech HUN SEN declared tourism as a priority, the situation has significantly turn around of staggering 26% increase in the numbers of tourism entering the country.

Phnom Penh arrivals, after the country was elected as FAVORITE CULTURAL DESTINATION, grow by 7% and Siem Reap arrivals where up by 11% after the previous month.
The challenges ahead are still there as the country needs to attract more airlines for direct flights in order to transform Cambodia from a seasonal destination to an all year/ all seasons destination.
Luu Meng, president of the Cambodian Hotel Association, said despite the importance of the Chinese market—which airlines have been increasingly tapping into—Cambodia also needs to focus on securing direct flights from other countries as well as promoting destinations outside Angkor Wat.
Cambodian tourism sector perfect development on 2016, has become a World Model on the occasion of World Tourism Day.
A model to be analysed and copied by countries around the world in order to obtain a health tourism industry and a to foster the national development via tourism and international cooperation.
No country in the world had ever registered a growth equally to that of Kingdom of Cambodia, with 26% increase in arrivals numbers in just two months after becoming WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION.
If the Kingdom will succeed in keeping the momentum in the next months the tourism sector in the country can be a perfect world success story and example.
Let`s all wish to Cambodia a perfect ending for 2016!
