Doing business in Cambodia

Cambodia is a developing market economy in Southeast Asia with a population of more than 16.5 million people and a GDP of around USD 22 billion (2017). 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.

Recently, a Multi-sectoral Market Study in Cambodia has been finalised. The report provides an overview of doing business in Cambodia and highlights business opportunities in five sectors: Agriculture, Logistics and Infrastructure, Energy, Healthcare and Garment industry.
