This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
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
