Over the past 20 years, Cambodia has made excellent progress in poverty reduction and human development, on the back of strong growth in agriculture, garment manufacturing, and tourism. However, these recent gains have been threatened by the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, leaving many vulnerable to poverty and genderrelated disparities. The country is also highly exposed to the impacts of climate change and faces significant challenges in sustaining growth and maintaining progress in health and education.
Cambodia achieved lower middle-income status in 2015 and aims to recover from COVID-19 and become an upper middleincome country by 2030. To do so, it is diversifying its manufacturing sector beyond garments and textiles, with strong growth in high-value exports.
Since 1966, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) has committed loans, grants, and technical assistance totaling $4.5 billion for Cambodia, of which $782.7 million was mobilized from cofinancing.
