Cambodia urged to rethink Chinese ties, land policies to recover from pandemic

According to global network People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty (PCFS), international research-based organization GRAIN, and Cambodian NGO Ponlok Khmer (PKH),Cambodia’s “growing” relationship with China will only worsen landlessness and abuses to Cambodian rural peoples.

The groups made this statement after the fifth meeting of the China-Cambodia Inter-government Coordination Committee,which was held last June 16, 2020.

“Cambodian farmers and Indigenous Peoples are already suffering from the consequences of the two countries’ strategic partnership, which only works in favor of China.We stand with these communities. They have to contend with the continuing abuses of Chinese investors while looking for ways to cope with the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic,” said PCFS.
