BCD Travel Expands APAC Footprint With Cambodia Operations

 BCD Travel is expanding its Asia-Pacific operations with the addition of Tonle Travel as its partner in Cambodia. BCD Travel now has offices in 18 countries throughout Asia Pacific.

BCD Travel's presence in Cambodia reflects the country's strategic importance to global business as
a trading and logistics hub for the Indochina region. "The partnership with Tonle Travel allows us to enhance our service offering and grow our presence in a key emerging market," said Vinay Chhaya, vice president of operations in Asia Pacific for BCD Travel.

Established in 1997, Tonle Travel specializes in corporate travel and inbound tours. The official partnership announcement caps a working relationship of more than four years, during which
Tonle Travel has supported BCD Travel's multinational customers in Cambodia.

"Cambodia's robust economic performance continues, with 7.5% anticipated real growth in 2015 and rising foreign direct investment. This growth in the manufacturing, construction and service sectors has resulted in increased demand for quality corporate travel management solutions," said Tui Rutten, managing director of Tonle Travel. "By partnering with BCD Travel, we can add immediate value to our Cambodian customers' business travel programs, and foster new business development growth."

Greg O'Neil, president for Asia Pacific for BCD Travel, said: "With the solid economic outlook in Asia, we see great opportunity in continuing to expand our presence throughout the region. This new partnership sends a clear message: As a global player in the business travel market, we're committed to helping corporate customers and their travelers travel smart and achieve more - wherever they need to be."
