Weighing the Costs of Cambodia's Rental to China (Opinion piece)

"Cambodia owes about half of its US$6 billion debt to China, or about 15 percent of Cambodia’s US$22 billion GDP. And a recent Bloomberg report cites the Center for Global Development, a Washington research group, as indicating that a further US$3.5 billion in Chinese loans are being pumped into Cambodia on the back of BRI.

As it stands, Cambodia’s overall debt level at 38 percent of GDP in 2017 is manageable, even enviable by the standards of Japan (245 percent) and the U.S. (118 percent), but the African proverb “If a man’s hand is another man’s pocket, he must walk where he walks” surely applies."

Thank God we have two hands.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
