Confluences Ventures into urban transport.

Nicolas Decottegnie - Confluences Ventures

Confluences Ventures wants to tackle the traffic challenges in Phnom Penh by starting with a project suggesting boat routes to move cleanly, quickly and conveniently in the city and its suburbs.

A partnership is in progress with a company from Myanmar, which a few years ago developed a network of boats allowing them to circulate in the Myanmar capital of Yangon.

This will allow Confluences to have an ideal technical partner to start the development of this project, which should facilitate the travel of the inhabitants of Phnom Penh and would thus allow for the decongestion of the city.

In 2018, the Ministry of Public Works and Transport launched its own boat network, but these were placed on hold, largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Confluences analysed the strengths and weaknesses of this first network, in order to be able to provide users of future "Water Bus" routes with the best possible experience.

Organised around a network of river routes, the boats will travel along the Mekong, Bassac and Tonle Sap rivers. The numerous stops available would allow the inhabitants to make their daily trips easily and efficiently.

The next steps in this ambitious project, which was initiated only a few months ago, will be to present it to the Cambodian authorities and have it validated. We are confident in our ability to both mobilise the right technical partner for this new project, and to raise funds if necessary. As with our other ventures, we are focused on bringing innovative and effective solutions to the country.
