Grab Cambodia media launch was organised here this morning under the presidency of Cambodian Senior Minister, H.E. Sun Chanthol, Minister of Public Works and Transport.
With this launching ceremony, Cambodia officially became the 8th country in ASEAN for Grab. With the addition of Phnom Penh, Grab is now in 156 ASEAN cities with over 2.1 million drivers, bringing convenience for our citizens and jobs for drivers.
The Ministry of Public Works and Transport has entered into a MOU with Grab to work together in helping analysing traffic management by utilizing Grab's GPS car points to help our relevant authorities.
GRAB and UNDP Cambodia are also exploring a potential partnership to promote sustainable urban transport measures, technologies and systems with the view to reduce transport-related green house gas (GHG) emissions and improve the living quality standards in urban areas.
Currently, the Ministry of Public Works and Transport has adopted new regulations to enable the concept of ride sharing in Cambodia, allowing for profound changes due to 21st century technology to the urban and rural global transport system infrastructure.
This ride sharing/hailing service is a new concept of transportation services in the country and has proven globally to be safe, providing more convenient options in commuting to our citizens and providing new jobs and income for Cambodian drivers who use their family vehicles to provide this service.
Besides Grab, Uber � another new and modern transportation service � is operating in Phnom Penh since September this year.
