More Chinese Takeover in Sihanoukville

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.

Another building self destructed near the brewery today. Saves on demolition costs I suppose.
Noting reports that many Chinese workers are preparing to leave Sihanoukville, Shepherd said "this bubble has well and truly burst."

Cambodian officials recently ordered the demolition of 14 recently constructed buildings in Sihanoukville, including a number of casino hotels that were found to be dangerously flawed following a building collapse in June which killed 28 workers.

"The place is in chaos," said Brad King, managing director of Cambodia Real Estate.

With online gambling gone the focus must now be on attracting tourists- and not just the Chinese.

The environment , infrastucture and building safety top of the list.

Crime seems to be being tackled by the Khmer Authorities head on which is positive.

Long way to go on many fronts but no other option.!!!!

So the bottles have Chinese text on it I guess? Because this island of trash happens every year. Many times it even hits the shore and usually the trash originates from Thailand or Vietnam.
