#cambodia : How Korean Exchange (KRX ) helped Laos and Cambodia to establish Stock Exchange

Korean Exchange Accused of Plagiarizing Cambodian Report

 

The KRX has a 49 percent stake in the LSX and also holds 45 percent of the Cambodian exchange. The investments have to date been markedly unprofitable.

South Korean businessmen enjoy a somewhat buccaneering reputation in Southeast Asia, highlighted by spectacular bankruptcies and half-finished projects that dot the urban landscape in cities like Phnom Penh. Korean diplomats have been known to quietly express their reservations about some of their businessmen and their questionable practices.

#Cambodia : International Press Echo : Interview with VANN MOLYVANN

Vann Molyvann : Phnom Penh’s Most Famous Urban Planner Sees a City on the Verge of Collapse

 

“There will be slums everywhere, like la favela in Rio de Janeiro,” Molyvann says. “The Khmer people are very resilient. We have been attacked and swallowed by other countries, but our culture was never completely destroyed.” But as long as Cambodia’s ruling party (which has controlled the country since 1979) remains in power, Molyvann believes that nothing in Phnom Penh will change for the better. “I have no hope that we can survive this time.”
