Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading on-demand transportation platform, has launched in Phnom Penh and signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Ministry of Public Works and Transport of Cambodia (MPWT) to support the Kingdom’s infrastructure development. Grab provides safe and reliable on-demand transportation, and will use its technology and data to improve road safety and traffic management in Cambodia.
The MOU was signed at Grab’s launch event between H.E. Sun Chanthol, Senior Minister and Minister of Public Works and Transport and Tan Hooi Ling, Co-founder of Grab, in the presence of Oliver Ching Ming Han, First Secretary (Political) of the Embassy of the Republic of Singapore in Phnom Penh, and Nick Beresford, Country Director, United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) Cambodia.
H.E. Sun Chanthol said: “We are appreciative that Grab is a fully compliant company in all the ASEAN markets they operate in, adhering to high ethical standards in making transportation accessible for all and in bringing Southeast Asia into the digital economy.”
“Southeast Asia is our home and our goal is to improve lives here. Today, we are honoured to launch in Cambodia. We look forward to working closely with MPWT, which has taken big steps to modernising the country’s infrastructure. Together, we will use technology to create safer roads, improve traffic, and provide greater income opportunities for the local community,” said Tan Hooi Ling, co-founder of Grab.
