Southern Grid pulls out of Cambodian projects

September 8, 2011

In an — I think — unprecedented move, China Southern Grid’s spokesman, Rambo Niu, announced the company was pulling out of its planned power projects in Cambodia, South China Morning Post reported (Toh Han Shih, “Controversial Chinese projects in Cambodia bow to public pressure”, Sep 03, 2011) . These are the very projects on the Sesan and Srepok rivers that the Caijing journalist wrote about recently (see 31 August post).
