The Chinese will be the first to go . When I first came here , it was the French , then the Brits , then the Germans , then the Russians .
The Chinese are finding how difficult it is to do business here , and make a profit , already I am seeing restaurants closed / for sale .
They pay over the top for everything , and their only customers are other Chinese .
Brits used to come here with 10k , and think they could start a profitable business , the Chinese are the same .
And , sooner rather than later , the Chinese economy will nosedive , banks are already starting to shovel money out the door , lending to anyone with a heartbeat . The next Chinese new year is going to be mayhem though .

What a stupid thread.
Khmers don't give a toss about drunken bum foreigners. They have enough of their own.
Why only yesterday morning I was going out for a spin on the unicycle and came to a road blocked by a wedding tent. There was some sort old Twat tastefully lying in the gutter missed just outside. At 1000am. And he wasn't even Australian.

The Chinese are finding how difficult it is to do business here? Sure, explain then how they have been dominating trade and commerce in the region for centuries. :roll:

Chinese forgien currency reserve increase for the eighth month in a row to over $3 trillion.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... ital-curbs

This is the model Cambodia is following.

Even after the supposed clampdown on outgoing money the Chinese are still spending shit loads in Cambodia.
The Chinese are here to stay. No change from the last 1000 years.

The chinese are there to stay. Buying up property, busuness and bringing in their own workers. Hence reason over 600 khmers leave daily, Legally, to work in thailand :thumbsup:

600 a day leave Sihanoukille?
So nearly 22k leave annually to work in Thailand? On top of the existing workers who already work in Thailand?

:lol:

Sounded a bit high to me but I did find this from just a few months ago...

http://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/many-cambodian-migrants-still-unregistered-work-thailand

The Thai Labour Ministry reported yesterday that nearly 223,000 Cambodians had registered at centres in the country during a two-week window for undocumented migrants to get papers, a number that falls well short of legalising all Cambodian workers in the country, according to estimates from experts...

Migrant rights workers have previously estimated that the number of undocumented Cambodian workers is as high as 500,000 – leaving many migrants and their employers exposed when the law kicks in.

Haha I don’t think he is just talking about Sihanoukville. Number is absolutely believable to me.
And it’s 220k not 22k.
Wouldn’t expect that number to be net though

So Khmers getting themselves registered and legal from all over Cambodia to work in Thailand?
Because of the Chinese taking over Sihanoukille and nicking all their jobs?

Bit of a leap.

Historically hasn't there always been a large migration of Khmer workers to Thailand, both semi permanent and long term? It's got fuck all to do with the chinks, who have only really been on everyone's radar for what 18 months and mainly in SHV.

Maybe they just want to earn more and have "stuff". I don't know. I'm not trying to defend the Chinese. I just irritated when everything is just blanket blamed on the Chinese.
