The National Assembly of Cambodia on Monday adopted a long-anticipated draft law on petroleum, which was designed to manage, promote and develop the country’s petroleum industry.
Some 108 lawmakers of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), who were present at the parliamentary session, unanimously approved the draft bill.
Mines and Energy Minister Suy Sem said the draft law, initiated in 1996, consisted of nine chapters with 72 articles.
