Cambodia

Cambodia gained full independence from France in 1953. From 2004 to 2007, the economy grew about 10% per year, driven largely by an expansion in the garment sector, construction, agriculture, and tourism. More recently the global economic slowdown has reduced growth. Oil extraction and mining represent potential new economic opportunities in Cambodia. Basic infrastructure is one area of future development.
