Cambodia’s Hun Sen Downplays Possible Loss of EU Preferential Trade Scheme

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen Friday reiterated that he is not concerned with the possibility of losing duty-exempt status for the country’s products in the European market under the Everything But Arms (EBA) scheme.

The prime minister made the remarks while speaking to a group of Cambodian supporters in Brussels, echoing sentiment he expressed several times over the past year after the EU, concerned about the human rights situation in Cambodia, threatened to rescind EBA status.

“I have more concerns over ineffective government officials than losing EBA,” said Hun Sen.
