FIGHTING BACK: Full Report on the IFFM to Defend Land and Life against Hengfu’s Operations in Cambodia | SPEAK OUT Special Issue March 2019

The people of Preah Vihear province, north of Cambodia are currently engaged in a struggle for their land and life. Sugarcane fields are slowly replacing their communities due to the corporate takeover of Guangdong-based Hengfu Group Sugar Industry Co., Ltd., a Chinese agribusiness mainly producing diversified sugar products. In 2011, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) granted it economic land concessions (ELCs) covering over more than 42,000 hectares of land in the province. Hengfu’s landgrabbing is one of the prominent land dispute cases in Cambodia.
