Phnom Penh (FN), Jul. 14 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen asked local mobile phone and internet companies to strengthen their internet service in urban and rural areas, speaking during the Ministry of Tourism’s annual meeting at Sokha Hotel Phnom Penh, held on Thursday (Jul 14).

"Not only the rural areas, the urban also needs strong mobile services. In some places, for instance, hotels offer free Wi-Fi, but it does not work. If I come to a place like this, I cannot use the internet because there is no service,” the premier underlined.

"All companies need to strengthen the internet services to attract tourists to visit remote areas,” Samdech continued.

Samdech added that some people work during their trips, thus, it affects their work without internet.
