Cambodia hopes to become a leader in the development of bio-fuel in the face of increasing global oil prices, say government officials.

The development of bio-diesel produced from Jatropha curcas, a plant native to Cambodia, has drawn attention from investors, said Sat Samy, deputy secretary of state for the Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy during a workshop on Cambodian bio-diesel held recently in Phnom Penh.

Bio-energy industries are present in a number of countries, said Secretary of State for Ministry of Industry, Mines and Energy Ith Praing, adding that European Community (EC) countries will increase their use of bio-fuels from 15 percent to 20 percent of the total by 2020 with the intention of reducing green gas emissions.

Sat Samy told Rasmei Kampuhea that bio-diesel from Jatropa oil has many benefits; providing cheap fuel for generators, a renewable source of revenue for the economy and decreasing Cambodia’s reliance on fuel imports. Bio-fuel also promotes the use of agricultural land for cash crops, he said, as well as ensuring a clean environment, as bio-fuel is far less polluting than fossil fuels.

The industry is in its infancy in Cambodia, said the secretary of state, adding that ten firms have started production or shown interest in Jatropha cultivation so far.

A recent study showed 3,500 Jatropha trees can be grown per hectare, producing 3,000 liters of oil annually after three years.

Some Jatropha oil, produced by smallholders, is already available in Cambodia, priced at 2,300 riel (about US$0.57) per liter. Firms are buying Jatropha seeds for 400 riel (about US$0.10) per kilogram, said the deputy secretary of state, adding that many seeds have been sold in Kampong Chhnang, Prey Veng, and Kampong Speu.

By Reinhard Hohler, Chiang Mai (28.11.2007)

Back to back with this year’s PATA Travel Mart in Bali/Indonesia, the eagerly awaited 2nd Angkor International Tourism Exchange (AITEX) was successfully held in Siem Reap/Cambodia on October 1-3, 2007. In collaboration with Apsara Authority, Siem Reap Provincial Authority, Cambodia Association of Travel Agents (CATA) and Cambodia Hotel Association (CHA), the Ministry of Tourism in Cambodia hosted some 182 booth sellers from local and overseas national tourism organisations, travel agents, hotels, airlines and other related-tourism businesses. On the other end, some 250 buyers and 50 media from around the world were invited to this significant event in order to realise that the global tourism industry is a very competitive business.

On behalf of the AITEX 2007 Organising Committee, Mr. Chhoeng Monny from the Ministry of Tourism had generously invited me to come and attend the show. So on September 30, I took Bangkok Airways flight PG903 from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International Airport at 8.00 in the morning, arriving just one hour later at Siem Reap International Airport. As an AITEX delegate, I was quickly channelled through immigration and customs. The visa on arrival costs 20USD and allows you to stay for one month in the Kingdom of Cambodia.

There was an arranged transfer to Cambodia’s premier luxury “Angkor Palace” spa resort, where each of the 259 rooms, suites and villas are tastefully furnished and offer broadband internet access. The lush 11-hectare resort features a spectacular swimming pool and nearby Kainnora Spa, where massage therapies, facial treatments and body scrubs or wraps are in order. Angkor Palace’s Sales Manager Mrs. Grace F. Agatep was a very gracious and caring host. Other supporting accommodation for delegates of AITEX 2007 were given by City Royal Hotel, Sokha Angkor Resort, Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, Prince d’Angkor Hotel & Spa, and Somadevi Angkor Hotel.
