Cambodia’s State Secretariat of Civil Aviation (SSCA) has completed the study of initial master plan to develop a domestic airport at Mondulkiri province.
The news was shared by the SSCA’s Technical Deputy Director General and Spokesperson H.E. Sin Chansereyvutha during a press conference on SSCA’s recent progress review and planning yesterday at the Council of Ministers here in Phnom Penh.
The study was carried out following the priority given to the northeastern province as a potential tourist destination.
