Tough new face of US diplomacy in Cambodia

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.

I can see this spilling over to special treatment of US citizens.
The United States is Cambodia’s largest single-country export destination. In 2016, approximately 21.31 percent of Cambodia’s total exports reached the United States – primarily garment and footwear products. In 2017, Cambodian exports to the United States were valued at $3 billion, and U.S. exports to Cambodia totaled $400 million. The United States and Cambodia are signatories to a 2006 Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) to promote greater trade and investment in both countries and to provide a forum for addressing bilateral trade and investment issues. In February 2016, the third TIFA meeting was held in Phnom Penh. The United States and Cambodia began exploratory discussions on a Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) in May 2013, but the Cambodian government has not yet officially indicated interest in negotiating a BIT. Cambodia is also a member of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the Asia Free Trade Area (AFTA).

Maybe he should stay home and sort out democracy in the US first?
