Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

In recognition of the sector's importance to Cambodia's future development, the Government is committed to putting in place a framework that would attract international oil companies and spur investments in the oil and gas sector (upstream, midstream, and downstream). The Government?s program is intended to create a more robust institutional and administrative governance structure and the technical capacity to adequately facilitate investment in and oversight of the sector.

Developing the oil and gas sector in Cambodia is consistent with ADB?s country strategy and program (2005-2009) for Cambodia, which focuses on poverty reduction and continued operations to support the development of infrastructure and the promotion of an enabling environment for private sector participation.
