China To Take Over Kenya's Largest Port Over Unpaid Chinese Loan

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

SNV port is controlled by the Japanese. That is why China is building two more, one in Ream and one in Koh Kong....then they can step in on the Japanese SNV one too eventually.
It was officially handed back to Cambodia this year. All key Japanese staff have gone.

They may have run it but they didn’t control it.

Indeed you are correct. I have fallen behind in keeping up with SNV contracts as since the Chinese invasion, I have no clients interested in SNV at all anymore, so I have not been doing my homework lately regarding port operations. Makes sense since they have stepped up construction there 3 fold this year.

I have a Japanese friend (originally from Belgium...not really) who knew the key peoples because they ate at his restaurant. He said they kept him in business!
