Doing business in Cambodia
Cambodia is a developing market economy in Southeast Asia with a population of more than 15 million people and a GDP of around USD 18.5 billion (2015). The country’s economy is growing rapidly and liberal trade and investment policies have been introduced to promote trade and foreign investment. Despite its still challenging business climate, business opportunities can be found in several sectors, in particular in agri-food, horticulture, garments, tourism and construction/real estate.
