Background information

Following the regime of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s, economic development has first been slow but accelerated to an average annual rate of over 8% during the first decade in this century. Important key industries are the construction and real estate sectors complemented by the service-orientated industries garment and tourism. Moreover, agriculture still represents an important source of economic growth. Despite the recent success, poverty and inequality remain widespread and won’t be easily overcome if corruption and education are not improved.

About one third of the total land is cultivated and the agricultural sector as a whole accounts for nearly one-third of the total GDP, employing nearly half of the total workforce. The main crops are rice, rubber, corn, vegetables, cashews, cassava (manioc, tapioca) and silk. In order to fulfill the domestic demand about one-third of the total cereals consumption is imported.

Cambodia remains one of the poorest countries in Asia, even if poverty has been significantly reduced from 50% in the beginning of the century to current 20%. One of every three children below five still suffers from chronic malnutrition. A large part of the government budget is provided by international donor assistance aiming at improving living standards in the Southeast Asian country.
