Cambodia’s bottom-line people have been negligent by the Royal Government

នេះជាទិដ្ឋភាពមួយក្នុងស្រុកចំការលើ ខេត្តកំពង់ចាម។ កាលនៅមធ្យមសិក្សា គ្រូបង្រៀនថាដើម្បីធ្វើអោយសេដ្ឋកិច្ចរីកចំរើន ជីវភាពប្រជាជនមានបានប្រកបដោយភាពថ្លៃថ្នូ ត្រូវផ្តោតទៅលើឧស្សាហកម្ម ដោយលើកឧទាហរណ៏អំពីដីក្រហមកំពង់ចាម ក្រចេះ រតនគីរី ស្ទឹងត្រែង និងមណ្ឌលគីរីជាដើម។ គ្រូប្រាប់ថាដំណាំកៅស៊ូខ្មែរលេខ១លើលោក។

ថ្ងៃនេះខ្ញុំឃើញជាក់ស្តែង។ ដំណាំកៅស៊ូខ្មែរក៏ដូចជាដំណាំស្រូវនៃកសិករខ្មែរ គឺស្ថិតនៅលើប្រភេទដំណាំជាលក្ខណះគ្រួសារនិងពឹងពាក់ទាំងស្រុងទៅលើមេឃ-ដី-ភ្លៀង តាមធម្មជាតិតែប៉ុណ្ណោះ។ ការដាំដុះតាមបែបប្រពៃណីទាំងផ្នែកឧស្សាហកម្ម និង កសិកម្មទាំងនេះមិនអាចរំដោះកម្ពុជាចេញពីភាពក្រីក្របានទេ។

This a view of rubber plantation in Chamkar Leou district, Kampongcham. When I was in high school, teachers taught that if we want to uplift the livelihood of the Cambodian people, we must focus on industry by giving example of brown fertile lands in Kampongcham, Kratie, Ratanakiri, Stung Traeng, and Mondolkiri. They said Cambodia rubber is number one in the world.

rubber plantation 1 Today, I am eyes-witnessing it. Cambodia rubber plantation is like rice-stalk plantation of Khmer farmers which are categorized in family harvesting and the growing is wholly depending on sky-soil-rain of this natural dependency. The crops depends on tradition like this couldn’t uplift Cambodian people from poverty.

1. First challenge: Cambodian people are shortcoming of knowledge and financing especially lacking external supports particularly the Royal Government of Cambodia.

2. Second challenge: Cambodia’s market is the import market, not export market. Cambodia’s products rubber plantation 2couldn’t compete with neighboring countries. To produce for domestic demand is irrelevant as well, as many giant companies prefer to import raw materials for its processing. This type of scarcity and squeezing space of Cambodia market, Cambodian rice farmers and rubber plant growers are hopeless to escape from poverty.

3. Third challenge: Cambodia is rich of bragging leaders such as bragging about the greatness of Angkor Wat, bragging about their new achievements by comparing them to that of genocidal regime, and bragging about their luxury cars, villas, and escorts-servants etc. If leaders couldn’t make market, or seek market, or create cheap interest loan (bank) for the rice farmers and rubber plant growers, those leaders should just soak head into bottom of water jar to commit suicide

Australia silent as Cambodia’s Hun Sen deals final blow to democracy

Australia silent as Cambodia’s Hun Sen deals final blow to democracy

By Lindsay Murdoch

Comment: 22 February 2017

Op-Ed: TheAge.Com

Prime Minister Hun Sen has remained in power beyond the time of any of the world’s democratic leaders through use of politically motivated violence, control of security forces and the courts, and massive corruption.

Still to this day, I am haunted by the image of a pretty young girl sitting in shock amid the blood and debris of a grenade attack on an anti-government rally in a park across from the Royal Palace on March 30, 1997, in which 16 people were killed and 120 injured.

Bangkok: Twenty per cent of Cambodians live in poverty. Forty-two per cent of children under five years old are malnourished and stunted. More than half of Cambodians lack access to toilets and sanitation.

For three decades Hun Sen has ruled Cambodia with the tacit backing of foreign countries sympathetic to the leader of a nation emerging from genocide and civil war.

Australia has long being at the forefront of a donor-nation generosity that has seen billions of dollars pour in to help Cambodia’s 16 million people.

Since 2014 in particular Australia has showered diplomatic praise and an additional $40 million on Hun Sen and his ministers in return for Cambodia accepting what has turned out to be only a handful of refugees from Nauru.

Canberra is sending $90 million of taxpayers’ money to the country this financial year alone to contribute to what the Department of Foreign Affairs claims will be the country’s “greater prosperity”.

But the reality is very different.

Prime Minister Hun Sen has remained in power beyond the time of any of the world’s democratic leaders through use of politically motivated violence, control of security forces and the courts, and massive corruption.

Still to this day, I am haunted by the image of a pretty young girl sitting in shock amid the blood and debris of a grenade attack on an anti-government rally in a park across from the Royal Palace on March 30, 1997, in which 16 people were killed and 120 injured.

The girl was smiling, unaware of the calamity around her.

I looked down and saw she had no legs. She died on the way to hospital.

The level of corruption in the country that Australia’s Coalition government has made one of its closet allies in Asia – for political gain at home – is staggering.
