At a Cambodian Lake, a Climate Crisis Unfolds

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Even knowing all the sensitivities and pressures - and the back-room deals
I still can't figure out why the Gov did not kick up a God Almighty stink about this kneecapping of Cambodia.
It is going to be crippling.

They probably already have plans to lease the dry lake bed off to some Chinese investors. Would make for some nice condo and borey developments...

A lot of times one get the feeling the government doesn't care about this country.

Years?

Try Centuries. From the Kings of old to modern times.

No European like ‘Age of Enlightenment’ occurred in Cambodian history.
