Cambodia’s new gaming legislation which aims to provide more regulation and curb abuses may sound good. But a US-based expert questions how much benefit it will provide.
The National Assembly approved the bill this week by 114 out of 117 votes, Inside Asian Gaming reported. The king of Cambodia is expected to sign it into law. The new law has 12 chapters and 97 articles, the Khmer Times, a Cambodian-based publication, reported.
It is designed to encourage economic growth, promote tourism, add jobs, generate more revenue, and maintain security, Cheam Yeap, chairman of the National Assembly’s Commission on Economy, Finance, Banking and Audit, was quoted by Inside Asian Gaming.
