Holiday In Cambodia

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Nothing brings newlyweds together quite like a trip to the Killing Fields.

Cambodia would have to be one of the cooler places I’ve been. The people here are amazing, their culture is beautiful (not too westernized… yet), and you can see the country is gearing up. Everywhere you look, there is construction, infrastructure & commerce on the move. Although it’s still early days, the seeds are being sown… and the crop should be exciting!

Of all the places I’ve been in the last few years, I consider Cambodia to be ‘Opportunity Central’. In terms of global business, I believe the next few decades will see the steady emergence of the developing world as ‘the place to be’. The B.R.I.C countries get most of the press in this area, but there are many other places on the planet that are hot on their heels which don’t get the media coverage they deserve. Cambodia is a country I’d be happy to set up shop in.

I am so roonree…

Why am I here?

Anyone who understands the geography of the 38th parallel & the DMZ should have a fine, yet bewildered appreciation for just where it is I am standing. I also have little doubt that the fact I am wearing an “Obey” Public Enemy Jacket will make someone in the CIA chuckle as they log my profile into their database. But most importantly, North Korea is now Open for Business!

Favourite quotes: Stability: We are a government with solid security and very stable political system, without corruption and DPRK provides the lowest labor cost in all Asia.

(is that really something to advertise?)

They have a point though. I don’t think there is a more stable government on Earth, and their people did look painfully poor to me… But just so I have it straight, I’m not to worry about that lack of electricity, no running water or the threat of all out war, yeah?

O.K, cool. Let’s do “stuff”.
