Asian Development Bank and Bhutan: Fact Sheet
Asian Development Bank | April 2011
Updated yearly, this ADB Fact Sheet provides social and economic indicators on Cambodia as well as concise information on ADB's operations in the country and contact information. Cambodia has received $1.17 billion for 56 loans (40 project loans and 16 program loans), $255.71 million for 21 Asian Development Fund grants (17 project grants and 4 program grants), and $112.86 million for 164 technical assistance projects since joining the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in 1966. Most of the assistance has been provided since ADB operations in Cambodia resumed in 1992, shortly after the country’s 2 decades of isolation and conflict ended. Cambodia has made great strides since then—ensuring peace and security, rebuilding institutions, establishing a stable macroeconomic environment, and putting in place a liberal investment regime. Gross domestic product (GDP) growth was robust over the 10 years prior to the global economic crisis of 2009. However, while the incidence of poverty declined from 34.7% in 2004 to 30.4% in 2007, it remains high, particularly in light of the strong growth performance during those years. Recent economic growth in cities has not flowed through to the rural economy, where more than 80% of all Cambodians live—expanding inequality.
