Cambodia Gets Even Closer to China With New Raft of Aid, Investment
China pledged further aid and investment to Cambodia and signed a raft of cooperation agreements with the Southeast Asian nation during Prime Minister Hun Sen’s four-day trip to Beijing this week, providing support for a regime increasingly shunned by other international donors.
While they do not share a physical border, Cambodia has a strong case for being the Southeast Asia country closest to China. The long-serving Cambodian prime minister has grown increasingly warm toward Beijing in the last two decades, providing a useful friend in a region wary of its larger neighbor’s intentions. To help address these concerns, China and Singapore agreed Thursday to set up a panel of international mediators to help resolve disputes arising from China’s Belt and Road Initiative infrastructure initiative.
