Only 20 of Cambodia’s 200-plus casinos operational in 1H22 as tax revenue plummets

The Commercial Gambling Committee of Cambodia (CGCC) has revealed that state tax revenue from the industry reached just 8% of the amount required by budget law in the six months to 30 June 2022, impacted by the closure of most casinos nationwide.

According to The Phnom Penh Post, figures from the committee – part of the Ministry of Economy and Finance – show that only 20 of Cambodia’s over 200 casinos were operational as of 30 June, resulting in a significant decline in tax revenue.

It also revealed that 129 casinos have reapplied for casino licenses this year but only 13 licenses have been issued by the CGCC’s General Secretariat so far.
