Description: Cambodia Old antique map of the town of Lawec in Cambodia halfway along the Mekong River on the way to Phnom Penh.

The Dutch East India Company set up a trading post at Lauweck in 1620, but the trade there proved disappointing, and just two years later the company shut the post down.

A new Lawec trading post was opened in 1636, and then sold to the British in 1651, with discontinuities corresponding to the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the era. Meanwhile, "From 1636 to 1670 the Dutch merchants lived at Udong on a semi-permanet basis, but in 1667 the Company left Cambodia.
