Cambodian Government Mulls Response to European Union Report on EBA Suspension

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Koy Kuong said the government will attempt to address all the points of concern raised by the European Union but refrained from divulging any details.

Cambodian government officials were tight lipped on Wednesday as to the administrations potential response to the European Commission’s report on whether to suspend key trade privileges, which was released on Tuesday.

The EU Commission released its preliminary findings after a six-month investigation period that could see Cambodia lose its access to the ‘Everything But Arms’ trade privileges on account of systemic human rights violations. The report has not been made public and has been sent to the government for an official response.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Koy Kuong said the report had been received but he had not read the findings.
