Confidence's concerns on Korean Real Estate Developers?

In just recent years, it has seen many numbers of Korean Real Estate Developers flowing to Cambodia. Large and tall building construction projects have been announced and with projects'names such as Camko City, De Castle Royal, Golden Tower 42, International Financial Center (IFC) and recently Phnom Penh Tower etc...

Although, due to the financial crisis started last year and as Korean government wanted to secure its economic growth remaining strong with financial stability, it has forced to call back Korean investors, who are doing business overseas to return back home. As result, this situation has translated into the delay or the slowdown of many real estate projects in Cambodia. Many buyers who bought and deposited already some money have been worried about this issue and there have been some concerns on confidence on those Korean investors - should they trust or not on them in any other projects made by Korean?

But as confirmed by Im Chhun Lim, Senior Minister of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction during the ground breaking ceremony of Pearl City in Sihanoukville yesterday, some construction projects made by Korean Developers will continue as usual and just some have been delayed, he mentioned Camko City, which is developing a satellite city in the outskirt of Phnom Penh, has almost completed its first phase of the construction. He continued that the situation will be back to normal or it will attract more Korean real estate investors after signing the MOU in June 2009 by Prime Minister, Hun Sen and Korean President in South Korea.

I can't wait to see what effect all these newly built properties, at prices way beyond what the average Cambodian can afford, will have on the market.
Along wuth the great leadership's neurotic and oppressive handling of the downturn, and total mishandling of intgernational press criticism, we will start to see disgusted tourists turning their noses at this odious regime.
The saving grace could be Cambodias potential for economic growth. Only, we know that a huge part of that came from property speculation itself.
Oh dear.
