Cambodia and ADB

In the Spotlight


Cambodia has moved closer to lower middle-income status via resounding economic growth driven by solid performances in garment manufacture, tourism, paddy and milled rice, and construction. While this growth is expected to continue through 2015-2016, the economy remains vulnerable to exogenous shocks and natural disasters. The Cambodia Socio-Economic Survey indicated that poverty in Cambodia fell dramatically between 2007 and 2012, from about 50% to below 20%.

Under the country partnership strategy for 2014-2018, ADB will continue to support the government’s economic reform priorities and help promote inclusive growth.
