Foreigners in Cambodia Allowed to Work Freely

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.

Frank, or anybody - do you know if local vegetable growers, and other primary producers, have benefited from the boom in Sihanoukville?
Or is fresh food still mostly imported from Thailand, Vietnam and Phnom Penh ??

As a betting man, unlike GM (lol), I put money on it having something to do with recent visits to China and Vietnam.

OIC - you mean spinach dogs.

In short - there is no capital inflow from this - is a merry go round that only supports people who make others lives a misery.

Take heart - it will not be difficult to replace this with something beneficial.

yeah yeah
but it got me thinking about local real vegie growers
has there been any benefit to them from supplying all the chinese restaurants, noodle bars and casino buffet tables?
is Sihanoukville ringed by horticultural holdings to supply them?
or is fresh produce mostly coming from outside?
I am just trying to get a picture of any beneficial flow-on effects from this gambling boom - apart from dodgy low level jobs and payoffs to the rich and powerful.

At least 30 percent of fresh food is imported.
Irrigation and labor are big constraints along with port transport and distribution infrastructure
