Country Report
The article reports Cambodia's economic growth. In the agricultural sector, which employs 72% of the workforce, Cambodia recovered from a drought and made an increase in irrigated land. Though having pressure of competition with low-wage economies such as India, exports from the clothing sector served as a driving force for the country's economic growth. Tourism also helped in contributing to its growth rate. High oil prices still remain a problem for Cambodia. This led to a current deterioration and pushed inflation up.
