PM blasts critics who claim Kingdom poorer than in 1979

Prime Minister Hun Sen highlighted the growing economy on Friday and called on critics of his leadership to swear on their lives that present-day Cambodia is poorer than in 1979.

At the groundbreaking ceremony for the Tbong Khmum Cambodia-China Friendship Hospital, Hun Sen also announced that he intends to lead the country for at least another 10 years. He said people should continue to vote for his party if they wanted to maintain peace and development.

On his 34-year rule, Hun Sen praised his government’s infrastructure programme, such as the construction of bridges, roads, hospitals and schools, and highlighted the difference between Cambodia now and after the collapse of the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime in1979.
