Phnom Penh Post reports that a new Cambodian procurement law is scheduled to be submitted to the Council of Ministers next week despite reservations from citizen groups on whether the law will be able to “ensure transparency in the public bidding process”.

San Chey, ANSA EAP Network Fellow for Cambodia, calls for independent citizen groups to have access to and monitor the bidding process.

“If there is a lack of participation by watchdogs within the bidding process, it will create opportunities for corruption … that will affect public services and create losses from the national budget,” he said.
