Mostly likely directed towards the Chinese. Cambodia could do with better croupier training, and VoIP classes.
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

^^^^^^^^^

Subject to this presumably:
"Due to the growing number of foreigners who come to invest in and work in Cambodia, Heng Sour said the ministry is preparing to launch a Prakas (announcement) soon, with the aim to ban foreigners from self-employment on 10 types of jobs, including driving taxi, tuk-tuk, or motor taxi, street vendor, barber, delivery man, and other small exploitations."

"Heng Sour also highlighted that the ministry will also prohibit foreigners from taking up positions as human resources managers or employees in private enterprises."

Curious what it means to be able to work freely. No work permit required? Would a new visa type be introduced? Or they just plan to rubber stamp all work pernit applications?

In short, the new announcement overturns the ban on the 10 jobs.

i guess too many Chinese barbers complained or Pieman has some pull with the Government.
