Chinese Media Reports Exodus From SHK

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.

Yes I’ve seen them but my friend can’t show the field ones as he will be in trouble.

It’s real.

Will gambling ban hit Cambodia real estate?
A recent government decision to stop issuing new online gambling licences in Cambodia has many speculating that inflow of both capital and visitors from China will take a hit in the coming months. Real estate insiders, however, say that the move only serves to improve the quality of investments coming into the Kingdom.

Many in the sector have pointed to the gaming industry in Cambodia as one of the main reasons that both investors and tourists from China have been coming to the country in increasing numbers over the past few years.

Indeed, Sihanoukville in the south and Poipet, on the border with Thailand, seem to be the focal points of this growth. Both cities have a well-established casino industry.

Everything was business as usual until the middle of last month. That’s when Prime Minister HE issued a directive that halted the issuance of new internet gambling permits. The move, which was trumpeted as a bid to eliminate online extortion associated with online gambling venues, also means that existed licences will not be renewed.

Local sources are reporting that many gaming venues have already shut their doors for good and thousands of Chinese expats have left Sihanoukville.

My ears on the ground say that a few smaller casinos have closed otherwise business as usual.

You mean ‘U turn’?
Yes. I think there’s an element of ‘smoke and bullshit’ about all of this.

HE isn’t going to cut the hand that feeds him.

like your unsubstantiated claims of dumped cars?
you seem to apply a double standard that gives you a free pass while doubting published reports.

it is very obvious that the government is working together with PRC police to clean up this mess.

what is "renig" POTR?
do you mean renege?

Does this mean all the 'refugees' will move back from Kampot?
You could be next.
