Prime Minister Hun Sen said the government had cancelled five economic land concessions
with five companies due to their failure to meet contractual obligations. "I
decided to sign a government degree for stopping economic land concession projects
with five private companies according to the requests from Ministry of Agriculture,
Forestry and Fisheries," he said at the launch of the World Bank's Equity report
on June 12. Hun Sen said he had "run out of patience" with the contractors,
but did not say which concessions had been cancelled.
