Cambodia's Development Finance Assessment
Jul 15, 2021
This Development Finance Assessment (DFA) for Cambodia analyses the public, private, international and national flows available to support investment in the country. It offers findings and policy recommendations for the Royal Government of Cambodia, specifically the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) to maximize the level of flows, and their quality and allocation, in order to achieve long-run development objectives.
The report adopts a medium term (five-year timeframe) in charting trends, making projections and offering recommendations. In recognition of the COVID-19 emergency and its serious financing impacts, however, the report also estimates the likely losses to Cambodia and sets out a possible near-term policy response. This is focused on the imperative of finding financing solutions for growing budget deficits in 2020 and 2021.
