Cambodia and ADB

In the Spotlight

In recent years, Cambodia has moved closer to lower-middle-income status through resounding economic growth. This has been driven by solid performances in garment manufacture, tourism, paddy and milled rice, and construction. While this growth is expected to continue in 2016, the economy remains vulnerable to external shocks and natural disasters. Although the poverty rate fell between 2007 and 2012, from about 50% to below 20%, more than 70% of Cambodians still live on less than $3 a day, which means that many of them remain vulnerable to falling back into poverty.

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

Cambodia is a member of the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS).
