Publication: Cambodia - A Better Investment Climate to Sustain Growth : Second Investment Climate Assessment
The objectives of this Investment Climate Assessment (ICA) are to: (i) provide an up-to-date, fact-based analysis of the business environment for policy-makers in the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC), the private sector, civil society, and development partners; and (ii) outline priorities for improving the business environment and suggest policy options. The body of this report is comprised of three chapters. Chapter one gives a picture of the private sector in Cambodia in early 2008, including its structure, main features, and overall performance across key sectors and nationwide. The sectors featured are: garments, food packaging, telecoms, and finance. Chapter two reviews the business environment, starting with existing firms' perceptions of the business environment, and then goes into more depth on each dimension. The chapter concludes by discussing which of these challenges are truly binding constraints on growth. Chapter three, after taking stock of on-going reform efforts, concludes with some key directions for reform and a few concrete policy options for the short and medium term.
