Print newspaper Cambodge Soir dead

Despite there is a growth of new print newspapers in Cambodia in recent years, French-language weekly newspaper Cambodge Soir is now dead. According to a news radio report by Voice of America today, there are about four thousand French citizens living and working in the country. This number translates into the readership, not to include those French-educated Cambodians since the 1960s.

Quoted by The Phnom Penh Post, Cambodge Soir director Jerome Morini√®re said that “the publication had lost support from its financial backer after operations became ‘too expensive’ in the aftermath of the global economic crisis.”
