CAMBODIA Ambassador Tuot Panha said the viability of Clark International Airport will make it one of the progressive international gateways in the Philippines.

The ambassador said she would like to see flights between Clark and Phnom Penh or Clark and Siem Reap, now one of the favored tourist destinations in Cambodia.

The Angkor Wat temples near Siem Reap attract over a million tourists each year rivaling that of top destinations in Thailand and Vietnam.
