Traders on Khmer border ask for reduced red tape


Dozens of Thai traders in Chanthaburi's Soi Dao district who trade in fresh Cambodian-grown agricultural produce have called on the provincial authorities for help with a recurring problem on the Thai-Cambodian border.

Cambodian authorities in Battambang province had prevented the traders' trucks from going further than 500 metres inside Cambodian territory, using the excuse that their vehicles use right-hand steering wheels which are not legally allowed inside that country.

The traders petitioned Chanthaburi provincial governor Phanat Kaewlai to urgently assist them because fresh farm goods produced in Cambodia which required truck transport for importing the produce to Thailand were liable to rot quickly in the rainy season. TNA reports
