Cambodia will not die if EU withdraws EBA trade preferences: PM

Phnom Penh – Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen said on Thursday that the country will not die if the European Union suspends the Everything But Arms (EBA) trade preferences for the kingdom.

“No matter whether it is suspended or not, the suspension of the EBA trade preferences, that will be known in 18 months, will not lead us to die,” he said during the closing ceremony of the Interior Ministry’s annual conference.

“We must not exchange our sovereignty for any aid,” the Cambodian prime minister said.
