Immigration: + 50,000 Chinese expected in 2018

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.

The good new is that you can post on here and complain about the mass immigration into Cambodia with impunity. Try doing that in the uk regarding our immigration policy you get called a racist, a facist and a nazi, they even have got a new law in place to stop you complaining its called a "hate crime". :stir:

Not quite true. It's not difficult to express your concerns about immigration in a mature and educated way. The only people who get called racists, fascists and Nazi's are people who verbalise their arguments using language associated with those groups. Groups who, in turn, are typically associated with hate speech. Hence the 'hate crime' you mention.

I regularly express concern over UK immigration, both online and in real life, and not only have I never been called any of those things you mention, I've never felt any need to be fearful of the law.
"not quite true" ? one example, Jack Straw, a labour politician from the left who led the fight from the UK against apartheid in South Africa in the 70s said he would prefer not see a constituent of his who wears a "face covering" , he was roundly criticised and called an "islamaphobe, a made up word to shut down any criticism of islam. There are so many instances of reasonable .people being shouted down I don ,t know where to begin
:please:
Jack Straw is Jewish, so yes, he's an Islamophobe.

Is that a question? Or a statement? Jewish people not liking muslims, and vice versa, is merely a fact. Also Jack Straw is a fascist control freak who took away many traditionally held freedoms from British people during his reign as Home Secretary. You complaining about not being able to complain is certainly in large part down to him.

The word facist is becoming meaningless, and thrown about all the time, disagree with someone ? no problem call them a facist this ensures all debate is closed down. this is the language of children. just like people who don't like Islam are called "racists"

Didn't the westerners do the same? They came with their western restaurants, bars and resorts too. In much smaller scale of course as there was much less westerners than chinese now but same thing has happened with them.
No they didn't do the same. Westerners rent buildings to run their business and a bar is sold by moving the deposit from barang to barang but the initial investment stays with the true owner - the Khmer. Westerners don't buy land over market price and kick out Cambodians to build giant concrete blocks where only Chinese are employed.

Where is a barang owned casino? The Chinese are changing the whole landscape into Macau 2. The barang let Cambodia be Cambodia and quite liked it that way.

Rabbit is way off base here;
The thing is westerners got involved in business's, employed locals an the profits stayed in Cambodia.
Not same with the Chinese, where the workers are Chinese and any profits or goods made, go back to the motherland or are shipped out
