Phnom Penh – Authorities in Sihanoukville have removed signs from Chinese-owned businesses in the city that misspelled Khmer words.
Business owners in the city were told to remove “improper” signs in March. The move also comes amid rising anti-Chinese sentiment in Cambodia following a spike in Chinese immigration.
The crackdown also came after photos of the signs went viral on social media platforms in the past few days.
