Cambodia Investigating Employment Status of Chinese Nationals Amid Complaints of Lost Jobs

Cambodia’s government is investigating the employment status of Chinese nationals operating businesses in Sihanoukville province, Interior Minister Sar Kheng said Monday, amid complaints by local residents who say they are losing work to the immigrants.

Speaking at a ceremony to announce the establishment of a national working group for Sihanoukville in the provincial capital, Sar Kheng said that while locals were initially happy that Chinese investors were purchasing their land at high prices, they are now frustrated because they are losing jobs to an increasing number of Chinese nationals who are moving to the area.

Sar Kheng said he learned of the situation after ordering experts from his ministry to investigate the matter in Sihanoukville by meeting with the provincial governor, businessmen and local residents.
