Twelve kilometres across Phnom Penh’s Japanese Bridge, two large columns tower over the fencing of a 94-hectare site. Atop each column, stylised flames leap from a cauldron. The Olympic rings decorate the gates to the site.

Knowledge is power – educating Cambodia

Twenty-five years ago, Cambodia’s schools were scarce, and teachers even scarcer. According to Chin Chanveasna, head of the NGO Education Partnership, enrolment was low and a lack of infrastructure prevented many children from attending classes. While Cambodia’s education system has made significant strides since the early 1990s, experts like Chanveasna warn that significant reforms are still needed if Cambodia’s education sector is to catch up with many of its peers in the region, and many of the problems that plagued the sector decades ago – while diminished – still remain.

Cambodia’s landscape transforms amid construction, real estate boom

With a relatively stable government and a welcoming foreign investment climate, the slew of Korean, Chinese and other regional capital pouring into an accelerated real estate building frenzy means the Kingdom is fast shaking off its war-torn reputation. Everyone wants a slice of the lucrative real estate pie in an emerging country boasting robust GDP growth of around 7 percent. So much so, Cambodia is now vying to build the tallest building in Southeast Asia with a project spearheaded by the Thai Boon Roong Group, in conjunction with China’s Sino Great Wall International Engineering.
