Revised Cambodia Casino Bill Could Pass 'Early Next Year'

Cambodia’s top official for gambling says Cambodia’s long-gestating casino regulation bill is due for passage “early next year”, although the Ministry of Economy and Finance is yet to finalise minimum capital requirements.

Ministry deputy director-general Ros Phirun today said the 12-chapter draft of the retitled Law on the Management of Integrated Resorts and Commercial Gaming has been revised and reduced from 113 to 97 articles.
