[...] (The late) His Majesty King Father Norodom Sihanouk, Preah Borom Ratanakaod, has worked very hard since (when Cambodia was under the rule of) the Supreme National Council (of Cambodia - SNC). Meeting in Pattaya, he visited each Cambodian delegation [...] he even came to visit me and my colleagues who were the SNC members from the State of Cambodia in my own room. "Excellency! should we make our Angkor temples a World Heritage Site,” he consulted said at the time. This was exactly what I remember [...] since 1991. Through his efforts and the understanding of our friends, especially UNESCO, the temples was approved as a World Heritage Site in 1992 [...]
(5) Two Benefits - the Nation Protects the Heritage that Our Ancestors Built and We Have Won Recognition as the World Heritage Site and People Can Move from Living Illegally in Prohibited Locations to Live in Areas Where They Are Entitled to Rightful Land Ownership
[...] Firstly, the whole nation will benefit from the protection of the heritage that our ancestors built and left us thousands of years ago here, and that we won recognition for the site, with international helps, to include in the World Heritage List [...] as for the people who formerly and currently live illegally in the heritage areas, by moving to a new location, they now have a land of their own, and get legal land titles [...] in the previous location, our people lived with certainty, as they would not know if one day they would be evicted and they are unable to expand homes as families grow [...]
(6) Five Basic Policies and One Appeal to Facilitate Resettlements at Run Ta Ek and Peak Snaeng Villages
First, on transportation, we need to help transport from the old place to the new place. I would like to entrust this task to the 4th military region and the 2nd army division to use means to help transport [...]; Second, as for cash aid and first step support [...] today (we are providing each family with) 50 kg of rice, 1 large case of instant noodle [...] 1 big box of canned fish [...] 200,000 Riel budget, plus 1 million Riel for each family to contribute to building a house [...] and there are 30 more sheets of corrugated zinc [...]; Third, those who agree to leave Illegal places to come reside in legal places are to get poor-family cards and pregnant women cards [...]. Already under construction, including the road to here [...] more than 2 kilometers [...] should be ready in asphalt before the Khmer New Year [...] clean water [...] please hand over this matter to (Minister of Industry and Innovation) HE Cham Prasidh to look for sources of clean water to supply to this place [...] HE Keo Rattanak also figures out how to draw in electricity [...] we are to build a secondary school and have a high school [...] there will be a three sections building as health centers [...] and eight sections markets [...[ while Minister of Posts and Telecommunications is responsible for telephone and internet services [...] and finally, I call on microfinances to help provide loans to people who have come to live in this area of Run Ta Ek with low interest rates [...]
Samdech Techo Hun Sen,
holds a get-together with more than 1,000 families move
out of the Angkor Archeological Park, 13 September 2022.
[...] Through cooperation with OCIC, we have used the proceeds from Koh Pich investment, from Koh Noria investment, from Chroy Changvar investment to build necessary infrastructures. It is my strict order to not use the benefits of these investments cooperation on current expenses but only on infrastructures to expand economic growth. So far, we have spent them on both the bridges over the river and the flyovers [...] there are five bridges across the river, eight flyovers, with a budget of more than 226 million US dollars, which OCIC, who has been granted the right to invest, is building [...]
Establishing a New City in Kandal Province in Consideration (3)
[…] So far, we have conducted study aimed at building the district of Lvea Em into a city a city [...] I have made it clear with Samdech Krola Haom Sar Kheng that after the study, the city will not be attached to Phnom Penh. We will keep it under the Kandal province. We will not attach it to Phnom Penh anymore. Let Kandal province have their taxes [...] the governor of Lvea Em district, I suppose if that happens, becomes the mayor [...]
Subway May Be an Option for Cambodia in the Future (4)
[...] Oknha Pung Kheav Sae introduced one of his engineers who graduated here and then went to Japan to study design [...] in the past, it was not the right subject. Making the subway is also not in demand. Now the need for subways is obvious. Phnom Penh’s real possibilities [...]is perhaps the subway. Subway can be connected from Phnom Penh to Kandal province (and to other provinces) and run contiguous in Phnom Penh, maybe (make a railway line) below. I do not know which generation, but the current generation of young engineers can foresee it [...]
Hope Countries Where Cambodian Workers Quit Jobs Do Not File a Claim for Compensation ... (7)
[…] What has been happening over the past week [...] let the Government of the Republic of Korea, Japan, Thailand, especially the Republic of Korea, allow me to apologize for the shortcomings of Cambodian workers, who was cheated and quit their jobs there and returned home. I am begging the governments of those countries [...] do not file a claim for compensation from the Cambodian government or from employees who have run away from their jobs, and please do not associate other Cambodian workers with workers who make mistakes due to Brahma deception in Cambodia [...]
Intention to Turn from Superstition into Politics (8)(10)
[...] I do not dare to conclude that (Khem Veasna) has no conscience or is insanity. I do not dare to judge because I am not a lunatic doctor. However, Khem Veasna at least did not call for people to overthrow the government. He did not call for the people to revolt and overthrew the government like someone else. He did not call for the armed forces to transfer their guns to destroy the government. He did not call for foreigners to cut off aid from Cambodia. He only enticed people with his superstition that everyone in the world will be drown and die, and only his place is safe [...] I would call on His Excellency Khem Veasna or I may call him brother Khem Veasna to end the call (for people to come to his farm), and please do not confine the people in there [...] let the people return home. Khem Veasna [...] may keep his faith, but he should be open that whoever wants to listen (may stay), and who does not want to listen may leave and go home [...]
