People's Republic of China

China and Cambodia on Thursday inked 6.4-billion-U.S. dollars deals ranging from infrastructure construction to energy exploration.

A total of 16 deals were signed after the hour-long talks between top Chinese legislator Wu Bangguo and Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen late Thursday afternoon.

The package of deals covered such key areas of bilateral cooperation as infrastructure construction, water resources development, telecommunication technology and energy exploration among others.

In earlier talks, Wu, chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC), the country’s top legislature, reviewed the smooth growth of China-Cambodia ties since the two countries forged diplomatic ties in 1958.

“Particularly in recent years, bilateral relations have developed rapidly,” Wu said, highlighting strong trust, sincere cooperation and mutual support.

Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged Cambodians to pursue a variety of partnerships throughout the Asia-Pacific region and not become over-reliant on China.

“You don’t want to get too dependent on any one country,” Clinton said in response to a question about China’s influence during a meeting in Phnom Penh today with Cambodian youth. “You want to look for partnerships that cut across regional geographic lines.”

Clinton’s Cambodia visit is part of the Obama administration’s drive in Asia to affirm U.S. leadership and provide a counterpoint to China’s rising clout. Both China and the U.S. are working to extend their influence in Cambodia, said Ernest Bower, director of the Southeast Asia program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a policy group in Washington.

Angelito Banayo told Reuters Cambodia has a surplus of 1 to 1.2 million tonnes of paddy rice which it can sell to other countries.

He said the Philippines, the world’s biggest rice buyer, was open to possibly purchasing the grain from its Southeast Asian neighbour.

An open, participatory tech conference held in Phnom Penh late last month provided Cambodian Internet users and tech lovers a chance to interact with those from outside Cambodia. I talked to regular participants to the annual conference of BarCamp Phnom Penh 2010, tech educator Preetam Rai and tech consultant Thomas Wanhoff (whose current base is in Vientiane, Laos).

Eduardo Jezierski, Chief Technology Office at InSTEDD

The BarCamp concept has matured and set its own footprint in Cambodia, it would be strange to imagine a year without it now.

I liked that there were many sessions in Khmer, and that the balance of male/female improved over last year’s (estimating). Also that there were many topics of technology discussed relevant to Cambodia, like modern models of starting your own business, Khmer text to speech, and technologies that are appropriate for local connectivity outside of Phnom Penh.
