Cambodia collected some $1.68 billion in revenue from customs and taxation during the first three months of this year, said Prime Minister Hun Sen.
Speaking recently at the 18th Government-Private Sector Forum, he said revenue from the Kingdom’s customs fees accounted for about $668 million between January 1 and March 29 while taxation revenue in the same period was about $400 million.
The prime minister said the increasing revenue serves as a main driver of rapid development and generates projects that are funded by international donors. Many such projects require government contribution.
