Hun Sen lashes out at bribes on transport
Mon, 2 May 2016
Prime Minister Hun Sen took aim at corrupt government officials that tack on unofficial fees for the transportation of goods, saying that an elimination of fees would cut the cost of logistics and increase the Kingdom’s trade competitiveness.
Speaking in Sihanoukville yesterday, he cited a confidential report that claims unofficial fees account for 48 per cent of transportation costs.
The prime minister described these unofficial fees as a form of “bribery” and called on relevant stakeholders to work with the Transport Ministry to solve the issue urgently.
