“During a discussion with a Chinese delegation led by the Deputy Minister of Science and Technology of China, Mr. Cao Jian Lin, on 7 April 2009, the Minister of Industry, Mines, and Energy, Mr. Suy Sem, told the guests that the Cambodian government recognizes the one-China-policy and therefore Cambodia always cooperates in most sectors with China. Even in the energy sector, so far, there are six Chinese companies investing in hydro-electricity in Cambodia, and as for the mines sector, Chinese companies also come to conduct studies. Industry is the sector with the most investment by Chinese companies, because Cambodia trusts the technology from China. That is why China studies and invests in most sectors in Cambodia. Billions of dollars of capital from China are invested in the energy field.

“Mr. Suy Sem went on to tell the Chinese Deputy Minister that, even though the world faces a financial crisis, China still does not slow down its investments in Cambodia. China and Cambodia still cooperate to overcome this crisis. For instance, at the Kamchay hydro-electric dam, a Chinese company continues its construction without any problems. Because China has advanced science and technology, he asked China to help to construct a laboratory for checking food quality, which is a problem where Cambodia is facing serious difficulties.

“Mr. Cao Jian Lin considered his first visit to Cambodia to have good results, based on a strong political base for cooperation, economy, and industry. Based on his own experience, Mr. Cao thinks that every sector needs advanced technology to progress. China has conducted reforms for 60 years to be broadly open in the fields of economy and technology. China’s development cannot be isolated from the support by neighboring countries including Cambodia. Therefore, we can continue the tradition of cooperation between technicians of Cambodia and of China.

“After the discussion, China signed to offer ten desktop computers, ten laptops, and ten printers to the Ministry of Industry, Mines, and Energy.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.17, #4867, 9.4.2009
