声明
针对近期社会组织关心的桑河二级水电站相关问题,我们进行了调查了解。桑河电站项目经柬埔寨政府批准建设,业主方严格遵循项目开发协议,履行应尽义务。电站建成后,有效缓解了柬埔寨当地居民面临的缺电困难,极大促进了柬埔寨经济社会发展。水电站移民安置工作,按照柬埔寨政府批准的移民规划,由当地政府组织专门的移民机构实施。据实地调查,目前大多数移民安置工作已完成,移民生活条件得到极大改善。关于少部分移民安置中存在的分歧问题,当地政府正在积极协商中。我们将继续关注。
我公司在柬埔寨当地积极履行企业社会责任,详细内容请参见相关可持续发展报告(http://www.chng.com.cn/en/sustainability.html)。

Statement
In response to recent concerns from social organizations about the relevant issues of the Lower Sesan 2 Power Plant, we have conducted an investigation. The Lower Sesan 2 Power Plant project was approved by the Cambodian government, and the project company strictly followed the development agreement while fulfilling its due obligations. After the operation, it effectively alleviated the power shortage of local residents in Cambodia and greatly promoted the economic and social development of Cambodia. The resettlement work was implemented by a resettlement agency that organized by the government in accordance with the resettlement plan approved by the Cambodian government. After a field investigation, we found that vast majority of the resettlement work has been completed and the living conditions of the people relocated have been greatly improved. Meanwhile, the local authority is continuously working towards addressing a few remaining resettlement issues. We will keep our attention on this matter.
We will actively fulfill our corporate social responsibilities in Cambodia. For more details, please refer to the relevant sustainability report.
