Chinese Media Downplays Mass Exodus Of Chinese Nationals From Cambodia Following The Online Gambling Ban

China’s state-run media outlet, Global Times, says that the number of people leaving Cambodia after the online gambling ban is being blown out of proportion.

Global times quotes Lin Jiaxu, a reporter with state-run People’s Daily, rejecting the official figures released by the Cambodian government. Lin says that the number of Chinese nationals leaving Cambodia is “about 3,000 to 5,000, and most of them were driven out by the country’s online gambling ban.”

However, according to the estimated figures released by the Cambodian Ministry of Interior, about 120,000 Chinese nationals have left the country since online gambling ban was officially announced. The Ministry said that about 6000 Chinese nationals have been leaving Cambodia every day since the ban was declared.

China has already been calling for a gambling ban in the region. While it has appreciated Cambodia’s move to ban online gambling, Philippines straightaway rejected China’s demands to ban offshore online gambling.

As Chinese media tries to downplay the mass exodus, in the neighboring Philippines, it has already raised concerns about potential and probable influx of foreign Chinese workers.

Earlier this week on Monday, the Labor Group Trade Union Congress of the Philippines expressed concerns over the influx of Chinese workers in the aftermath of the exodus triggered by the surprising blanket ban on online gambling.

The TUCP president is reported to have called for a separate and specialist body to tackle the issue which he fears can dramatically impact the domestic offshore online gambling industry.
