BMI View: We believe that Cambodia's infrastructure sector is likely to benefit from China's outward infrastructure expansion over the coming years. Furthermore, the government is likely to seek to maintain a favourable business environment in a bid to continue to attract the foreign investment needed for economic growth .
Forecast And Latest Updates
We expect China's rising interest in Cambodia to lead to increased investment in the domestic rail network. Government efforts to improve the country's underdeveloped road and rail system will also provide further support.
Cambodia has been actively seeking to improve its electrical supply by engaging in joint partnerships with other countries to develop its electrical supply and increasing investment in hydropower dams. However, the country's energy infrastructure is likely to remain fairly underdeveloped despite these efforts.
Continued investment in the country's manufacturing sector, and government efforts to boost the tourism industry will be positive for Cambodia's residential and non-residential sector. Rising foreign investment in the sector will lend further support.
