Donald Emmerson
China's propensity for coopting, pressuring, and even bullying Southeast Asia's rulers is creating potentially double-edged swords for Beijing. A corrupt, entrenched local elite can be bought into alignment with China, as has happened in Cambodia. But, such cronyism can prompt opposition from civil society actors who are thereby more likely to blame China for local exploitation and repression, as has happened in

Angelina Jolie - United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees

The reason I was a little late is they made me change. They thought what I was wearing was too revealing. I actually went to a premiere once with pee on me. It was when the kids were little and I just got peed on at the last minute. There was nothing to do but wear

Some Japanese companies are actually quite good value. I personally prefer investments in Indochina, in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Myanmar and also Laos. That is the region I think has enormous economic potential and there will be plenty of opportunities. But for institutional investors, the Japanese market offers in some sectors very good

Mad knows himself very well and if he said he was ready, I knew he knew.

We don't want any superpower or anyone to get involved in this case. Let it go. If Kem Sokha is involved with foreign agents, a foreign government, to topple the Cambodian government, that is treason. During the 1960s they killed those people involved with the U.S., they shot

With national elections on the horizon, it is clear that this is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to crush the opposition before the campaign even starts.

For us it is an important friendly. We have a difficult game after this with Myanmar. Coming to Cambodia means similar conditions, similar weather. I think it will be an interesting game for us.

Stephen Constantine

My first views to play Cambodia was that it is very close to Myanmar and the conditions are very similar. They have recently played them in the AFF Suzuki Cup so it will be a good experience for us and will be close to how Myanmar play. Although Cambodia have a new coach and he will look to change somethings, but this was the main reason. Well, we wanted to stay here. We won't be able to train the same way over there. I am sure they (Myanmar) do not want us to be there too early. So, we decided that we will stay here for two or three days. It is better for

Solutions based on migrant labour aren't acceptable to the local population at this stage. To stabilise the rising building costs, the government and the construction industry will have to look into investing in initiatives and solutions that can increase industrial productivity. We used to call those casinos money-printing machines.
