What will Cambodia look like in two decades.

But will the power that be even notice or even care about these recommendations for the future?

After all the ? French made a master plan of growth for Phnom Penh a few years back. The plan provided adequate drainage, prevent traffic gridlock, etc., avoid all the problems happening now.

The result? Sitting on some administrator’s shelf somewhere still collecting dust from the day it was given to the Cambodian government.

maybe I am an optimist but I have hope for Cambodi. One of the things holding it back is the small population, but wherever you look these days there are babies. As the population grows, the market grows and it becomes more sensible to make things in cambodia than import them, especially if global warming put the bite on moveing finished articles about. It could well become cheaper and easier to move raw materials and build at the market. Imagine cambodia with 40 or 50 milion people. Now its worth building vehicles, fridges and tv's here. of course its not all good news. have to house those people and provide water and food so the environment will suffer. Somwthing like a cross between thailand and vietnam

The Flashpoints of HE’s Cambodia
A conversation with Ou Virak about human rights, China’s rise, and the plight of the Mekong River.
[Click on the link below to listen to the podcast.]
By Luke Hunt
December 23, 2020

As founder and president of the Future Forum think tank in Cambodia, Ou Virak has dealt with many contentious issues, ranging from human rights and elections to economic development to the rise of China.

He says the Mekong River, climate change and upstream dam construction are the looming issues that governments around mainland Southeast Asia will be confronted with over the coming years in conjunction with China’s overwhelming influence.

Ou Virak’s father was killed by the Khmer Rouge in the mid-1970s, but he survived the country’s 30-year civil war after fleeing to the Thai border where he was granted refugee status and moved to California at the age of 13.

Virak returned to Cambodia and lectured in economics at Pannasastra University before joining the Cambodian Center for Human Rights. In 2015, he founded Future Forum, and two years later, won the Reebok Human Rights Award for his civil society campaign for freedom of expression.

Will there be anywhere left in Cambodia that has not been taken over by the Chinese? In my opinion no.

Even if a LOT of the business will be chinese run or chinese owned there will be enough space for others in many business sectors. Hopefully some of the chinese money will drain down to the poor and get them out of poverty. The government surely wont do that.
