Re-routing

I have not always understood, or even agreed, with Sam Rainsy’s actions and inactions in the past when dealing with the CNRP and Cambodia’s political class in general. However his recent take on Project Syndicate detailing how Chinese companies are using China’s leverage over the Cambodian Government to bypass Trump’s tariff is spot-on.

It not only looks at the re-routing itself but correctly assesses that most of the Chinese investment and wealth remains within Chinese hands and little goes to the Cambodian population. Moreover, and with the EBA being under revision, Cambodia better start thinking about alternative sources of investment or they might fall into a Chinese pit from which they will not be able to climb out.
