Program Background

The Extractives Industrial (EI) investment in Cambodia have been growing rapidly. The Cambodia Ministry of Mine and Energy (MME) opens more for local and oversea companies to invest in the sector. Up to first quarter of 2022, 34 mineral exploration licenses, 21 Exploitation licenses and 478 construction mineral licenses were issued. Government have mobilized more investment and granted at least 4 companies to exploiting gold mine in the provinces of Preah Vihea, Kratie and Mondulkiri. One of gold mining companies exploited in Mondukiri province has up to now produced 5,300kg of gold, provided more than 8 million USD of royalty and 6.5 million of tax revenue, according to official of general department of state property and non-tax revenue of Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF).
