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.

ADB to Help Improve Water Supply, Sanitation in 4 Cities in Cambodia
9 December 2017
The FINANCIAL -- The Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) Board of Directors has approved a $50 million loan to help expand and improve urban water supply and sanitation services in four of Cambodia’s largest provincial cities, all of which are important commercial, industrial, and tourist centers in the country.

ADB will also administer a $10 million grant from the Japan Fund for the Joint Crediting Mechanism, funded by the Government of Japan, to help finance a new energy-efficient wastewater treatment plant in Battambang. ADB will also administer a €40 million ($43.54 million) loan cofinancing from Agence Française de Développement (AFD), which will jointly finance the project in all four cities.

Cambodia’s urban population is accelerating at a consistent pace, with the number of people living in cities expected to reach around 30% of the country’s total by 2030. While this phenomenon has helped in the country’s growth over the last few years and the emergence of secondary cities like Battambang, Kampong Cham, Siem Reap, and Sihanoukville—project cities—it also increased the need for basic urban services like water supply and sanitation. Currently, only 42.2% of the urban population—excluding the capital Phnom Penh—have access to piped water supply, and while 80.2% have access to improved sanitation, only 10.7% have access to sewerage and wastewater treatment...

Sewer pipes and waste treatment included in $120M water project
- The project will improve the piped water supply in Battambang and Kampong Cham, through the construction of two water treatment plants with a combined capacity of 61,600 cubic metres per day and a new 161-kilometre distribution network.

In Sihanoukville, the project will improve urban sanitation services through the expansion of the wastewater treatment plant and the construction of 37 kilometres of sewer pipelines, while a new 3.7-kilometre trunk sewer will be built in Siem Reap to reduce pollution and improve the urban environment in this international tourist destination.

The total cost of the project is estimated at $119 million, with the government contributing $10.54 million. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

Yes, another shipment of pork!

If Suvarnabhumi airport just outside Bangkok took so long to complete, what a clusterf!35 these provincial projects will be in Cambodia!

I hope the strong man makes sure NO ONE takes too big a chunk out of the pie ...

Not if there's a fire, not even if you hear the sound of a thud from my home and one week later there's a smell coming from there that can only be a decaying human body and you have to hold a hanky to your face because the stench is so thick that you think you're going to faint.

Even then, don't come knocking...Not for ANY reason.
