Cambodia is undergoing a phenomenon, the beginning of “Cambodia flourishing”, if you will. Even amidst the high-tension political brinkmanship, Cambodia has reached the tipping point, that is slowly but surely ushering in the Cambodia Spring. However, the season of spring flourishing must first be preceded by the season of discontent, the period we are in now.

The Cambodian economy is transforming rapidly. Most of the growth within the industrial and service sectors is located in urban areas, where labour and access to markets tend to be concentrated.And the prospect of higher incomes and educational opportunities in the cities has encouraged increasing levels of youth migration.

The Cambodian people made a choice on Sunday, July 28, a choice for their future and beautiful country. They made a wise choice. They chose hope over fear. They hope for democracy and a better life. Their voices clearly say that they want change, a change in the institutional system of Cambodia. They want to see a National Assembly that can hold the government accountable to the people, a reliable and fair justice system, an independent media, and better and clean public services. If the aspiration of change is not fulfilled, people will speak louder in the next elections.
