Cambodia

Back to Region

Background:

Over the past decade, Cambodia has achieved high economic growth underpinned by prudent fiscal and monetary policies that supported macroeconomic stability. A favorable external environment resulted in new productive opportunities for the country as well as significant progress in poverty reduction. Also, diversifying the country's production base and enhancing competitiveness are key to sustained high growth. The country should particularly focus on improving its basic infrastructure, labor skills and the business climate, as well as expanding market access through trade commitments.

In recent years, Cambodia has seen a Chinese investment boom which the government says will transform its underdeveloped $10 billion economy and improve living standards for millions of impoverished people. China is Cambodia's biggest source of foreign direct investment and planned to spend $8 billion in 360 projects in the first seven months of 2011-- as much as it invested in the whole of Southeast Asia in 2008. Beijing is also Cambodia's largest source of foreign aid.
