Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading on-demand transportation platform recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Cambodia’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) in Phnom Penh, confirming the company’s commitment to good governance, strict compliance and highest standards of operations in Cambodia. Under this MoU, Grab and ACU will develop and strengthen the collaborative efforts to build a transparency culture so to prevent and combat corruption through effective cooperation between the parties.

“We are honored that the ACU has agreed for Grab to sign this MOU today”, said Wee Tang Yee, country head for Cambodia and Thailand at the signing ceremony. “As Southeast Asia’s homegrown ride-hailing company, Grab  places  great importance to strict adherence to good governance and transparency in the way we manage our operations in all the 8 markets and 168 cities in ASEAN that we are in,” he said. “Regionwide, Grab is also well-recognized for our good corporate citizenship and record of compliance in all countries it operates. We believe that companies must contribute responsibly to the countries in which we operate and encourage other companies in the technology industry to do the same. This MoU signing with ACU underlines our commitment to  adhering to stringent business ethics in order to build trust in the community, and committing to the long term development of the countries in which we operate in.”

H.E. Keang Seng, Vice President of the ACU, presided over the signing ceremony, which was attended by ACU officials, Grab’s executive members and the press.

Senior Minister OM Yentieng, Head of Anti-Corruption Unit of the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia said, “Transparency can only be ascertained through our own hard work and ACU sees the importance of the private sector as an essential partner to combat corruption.”

Following its widely publicized media launch on December 19th in Phnom Penh in presence of H.E. Sun Chanthol, Senior Minister and Minister of Public Works and Transport (MPWT), Grab is now moving fast to expand its footprint in the Cambodian capital, to support the ongoing improvement of traffic flows and the reduction of accident rates.
