Cambodia's economic growth revised

Cambodia's economic growth revised | Cambodia | Scoop.it
The government revised its economic growth figures for 2012 upwards from 7 to 7.3% and said that strong policy was required to sustain the growth.
Sajel Dutt's insight:

Cambodia's economy is showing steady, constant growth towards a more developed country. Despite this, the government of Cambodia needs give some of its power to the people and strive for equality if the country wants to see rapid growth. To keep Cambodia's housing market steady, efforts can be made to protect property rights since as of now the people have very little rights, and the country should also focus on increasing education standards. Ever since being hit by the numerous wars of the country, it seems as if its economy has been a miracle. Now in the future it may be harder to sustain the economy so there must be a social and economic focus on poverty reduction by closing gaps in things like undernourishment, and resolving gender inequalities.- Sajel Dutt

World Bank Estimates Small Drop in Economic Growth

World Bank Estimates Small Drop in Economic Growth | Cambodia | Scoop.it
Cambodia’s economic growth for 2014 will drop to 7.2 percent, a slight dip from last year, the World Bank says in a recent report.
Sajel Dutt's insight:

Due to political problems and labor issues Cambodia's economic growth is projected to drop to 7.2% this year in 2014. Despite the uncertainty and unrest in the country, Cambodia is showing impressive economic growth and it continues to be a country to invest in even though investment this year is predicted to go down to 2 billion dollars. The country has been adapted to the internal problems of the country and have been able to show economic growth and reduce the poverty rate by 1% each year. The government, which controls the majority of the country, needs to give more power to the public if Cambodia is going to grow even more in the future.- Sajel Dutt

The price of land development in Cambodia

The price of land development in Cambodia | Cambodia | Scoop.it

As a growing economy ignites a property boom in Cambodia, the BBC's Jonathan Head speaks to the families forcefully evicted from their homes. Human rights groups estimate that 700,000 people have been adversely affected by land development, and they say the government and the courts openly side with the developers.

Sajel Dutt's insight:

Foreign investment inflows are attracted through cheap labor, cheap land, and abundance of natural resources allowing Cambodia to develop. As Cambodia develops, their land space is used for building offices and skyscrapers even draining lakes to use the land. Houses around this lake are being destroyed and people are being forced to move out.

Retire in Asia – Finance in Cambodia

Retire in Asia – Finance in Cambodia | Cambodia | Scoop.it
Sajel Dutt's insight:

Due to Cambodia's surges in economic activity in exports and agriculture, Cambodia has became a leading place for financial investment. Because of this many foreign retirees are attempting to put there money in Cambodia's banks, and now they are able to open accounts that gain interest. Cambodia's banking system with its new financial institutions and atm machines, are making money flow throughout the country more liquid and allowing for an easier place to invest money into.- Sajel Dutt

Cambodia economy defies global trend

Cambodia economy defies global trend | Cambodia | Scoop.it
Cambodia's economy is seeing robust growth, powered by domestic consumption and foreign investment. But it still faces challenges going ahead.

Via Arnaud Castaignet
Sajel Dutt's insight:

"Cambodia's economy expanded at an annual rate of 7.2% in 2012, up from 7.1% in 2011 and 6% in 2010."
Lots of other countries have a slow growth, while Cambodia is not.

Low cost of labor made US , Europe, and other countries want to buy from Cambodia. 

An increase in direct investment in the country also created economic growth

China wages on the rise, so more would buy cheaper things from Cambodia 

However Cambodia needs better education for further growth, and poverty is another concern.

Cambodia Economic Situation | ASEAN - Australia - New Zealand Free Trade Agreement

Sajel Dutt's insight:

Cambodia's economy is still struggling from the war and conflicts it had in the 70s and 80s,and the internal conflict from July 1997 caused a decrease in consumer confidence and capital inflows. Then in 2001 Cambodia took a turn for the better and is showing economic promise Cambodia relies mainly on its garment (industry) sector, tourism sector, and agriculture sector to drive the economy to growth and diversification. Currently the country is facing problems with creating enough jobs for the future because more than 50% of the country is under 21 years old and that can be acheived through better education systems and productive skills. - Sajel Dutt
