Overview

Find here a summary of some of the main services offered in Cambodia, such as accommodation, electricity and power, and financial services. All services are available in sufficient supply and are offered at reasonable prices. For more information on company contact details, please see the following link: 4.11 Additional Services Contact List.

Accommodation

Outside Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and the beach areas of Sihanoukville and Kep, accommodation prices drop considerably and in the minor provinces, smaller hotels aimed at local, mostly business travellers make up the bulk of the lodgings. 

As a general rule, using Phnom Penh as an example, this is what budget travellers should expect:

US$10: The higher end of this range may include a pokey little bathroom -- more likely to have no hot water. The room will be big enough for a clean bed with sheets and a couple of bags. It may have either a large ceiling fan or a small desktop one. This rate is also available for dormitory room with air conditioning and a fan. The shared bathrooms come with shower facilities.

US$20: Gets you a reasonable fan or basic air-con room. This room may has cable TV and internet connection. Your bed will have a clean mattress and sheets. Generally larger than the lower price range, these rooms often have a desk and chair. Bathroom may have hot water.

US$20-$40: More comfortable with air-con, a comfortable bed and a clean, well-equipped bathroom.

US$40+: The beginning of mid-range small hotels and guesthouses. As the price rises from here, expect more extras, such as refrigerator, balcony, breakfast and so on. 

Electricity and Power

In Cambodia, electricity is generated and/or distributed by the following entities:

  • Electricite Du Cambodge (EDC), a government enterprise,
  • Private entities including Independent Power Producers (IPP) in the provincial towns,
  • Licensees in smaller towns, and
  • Rural Electricity Enterprises (REE) in the rural areas

EDC has a consolidated license (generation, distribution and transmission) for electricity supply in Phnom Penh, Knadal, and in the 12 following provincial capitals, namely, Sihanoukville, Kampong Cham, Takeo and Battambang, Siem Reap, Bonteay Meanchey, Kampot, Kampong Speu, Steng Treng, Svay Rieng, Prey Veng, Rattanakiri (Banlung), and in the four following regions bordering on Vietnam, namely Bavet (Svay Rieng), Memot (Kampong Cham), Phonhea Krek (Kampong Cham) and Kampong Trach (Kampot).

The electricity supply currently does not meet the basic demands, where 24-hour supply of electricity is not assured and the quality of electricity is not reliable. According to the Power Development Plan of the Kingdom of Cambodia in 2007, electricity demand is expected to show a rapid increase until 2020. The future power demand is summarized in below table.

Financial Services

The Cambodian banking sector is a two-tier system comprising the public sector (represented by the National Bank Cambodia ‘NBC”), and the private sector such as commercial banks, specialized banks, microfinance institutions, and a number of NGOs involved in rural credit activities.

Under the Law on Banking and Financial Institutions, all banks shall be licensed and supervised by the NBC. In the past, a large number of banks had been inactivated due to poor management making people distrust the banking system. To solve this situation, the NBC implemented the Law on Banking and Financial Institutions and conducted a bank re-licensing program. Through this change, the Cambodian financial system has developed and stabilized.

As of December 2014, there are 36 commercial banks, 11 specialized banks, 40 microfinance institutions, 38 registered credit operators and six leasing companies in operation.

Besides banking institutions, there are also non-banks service providers which act as a third party processor. A third party processor is an institution entrusted by a bank to conduct one or more parts of its payment services.

Waste Management and Disposal Services

WASTE DISPOSAL - NON-HAZARDOUS

Waste collection in Phnom Penh is handled by a private company and the Phnom Penh Municipality. In 1997, a company called PSBK signed a contract with Phnom Penh Municipality to manage the city’s waste for the next 50 years. However, in 2002, CINTRI took over and has monopolized waste collection in the city since then. In addition to the contributions of this private company, the Phnom Penh Municipality is also responsible for waste collection and management in some parts of Phnom Penh. Those areas include poor neighborhoods and squatter communities where there is limited road access. This is done by an agency of the Municipality called the Phnom Penh Waste Management Authority (PPWMA) whose role is to either provide waste management services itself, or contract out these services to a private company or monitor their performance.

WASTE DISPOSAL - HAZARDOUS

For the disposal of Hazardous waste the reference government body is the Ministry of Environment. The Sub-Decree at the following link provides some guidelines (http://www.wepa-db.net/policies/law/cambodia/03.htm).

In Cambodia, legislation on hazardous waste disposal, such as the Safe Dumpsite Operation, exists. However, enforcement of legislation is not comprehensive and could be improved through better coordination and technical capacity of governmental institutions, including the development of guidelines. As the main waste generators, the private sector could be better involved and better educated on safe hazardous waste management practices. Funds are needed for tasks such as equipment maintenance, collection of pollution data, and the construction of specific landfills for hazardous waste. Local communities can also be mobilized as key actors, reporting any illegal treatment of hazardous waste in their areas
