Organized crime threatens peace and prosperity in an integrated Southeast Asia

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.

Controlling the illegal flows of goods, people and money has increasingly become a challenge that governments cannot address alone. The illegal trade of people, drugs, wildlife and counterfeits in Southeast Asia is conservatively estimated at USD 100 billion per year, and has a destabilizing effect by generating money for criminal and non-state groups that is laundered into the legitimate economy...
