China has donated 17 security scanners worth about US$12.5 million to Cambodia prior to Cambodia’s assumption of the 2012 Asean chairmanship.

The scanners – three of which are for shipping containers – are expected to augment trade and meet increasing security demands for the country’s chairmanship.

“China hopes the scanners will help Cambodia strengthen security at international ports, airports and at main functions, especially when Cambodia chairs Asean next year,” Chinese ambassador Pan Guangxue said after signing a grant for the scanners at a ceremony in Phnom Penh on Sunday night.

The donation also included seven full-body scanners, three large-scale baggage scanners and four scanners for personal belongings.

The shipping-container scanners should expedite the inspection process at the Sihanoukville port, Hin Theany, the country director of Mitsui OSK Lines, said yesterday.

“We have experience with a few scanners at Sihanoukville port, but they were very slow and sometimes caused the transport process to be scanned very late. So it’s good to have more scanners at the port,” she said.

Hin Theany added that she was concerned that Cambodian port officials would charge for the use of the donated devices.

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Keat Chhon, who received the grant from China, will support trade and prepare Cambodian security for the Asean chairmanship.

“China’s assistance to Cambodia significantly contributes to social and economic development in Cambodia, and helps strengthen Cambodia’s sovereignty and independence,” Keat Chhon said.

Since 1992, China has provided US$2.09 billion in grants and loans to Cambodia, the minister said.

That figure included $125 million in grants and $152 million in non-interest  loans, he said.

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
