Cambodia: Villagers involve in a land dispute with company running new airport construction project under Belt & Road Initiative

Landowners at the site of the new airport mega-project starting in Kandal province said the developer is still trying to encroach on their farmland even though they have not agreed to sell the affected land. About 300 villagers protested after the construction company, the Overseas Cambodia Investment Corporation (OCIC), reportedly sent bulldozers and attempted to close an entry road to farmland.

Negotiations between these families and the authorities have failed as both public officials and company representatives stand firm on a land compensation price that has previously been rejected by villagers.

Kok Say, who is in charge of land acquisition for the new airport, told the company is now continuing to purchase land from villagers based on a price offer of $8 per square meter.
