Last week’s deadly collapse of a seven-floor building under construction in Cambodia’s coastal Sihanoukville — a city booming with Chinese investments and infrastructure projects in recent years — is drawing attention to problems arising from unregulated buildings and construction quality in the country.
The Chinese-owned building collapsed last Saturday morning, burying workers who had lived on the worksite, killing 28 and injuring 26 people.
The collapse has drawn concerns from locals and construction workers in Sihanoukville’s dramatic but pell-mell economic growth.
