Cambodia has sustained an average growth rate of 8% between 1998 and 2018, according to the World Bank, making it one of the world’s fastest growing economies. In 2020, the GDP growth is estimated to drop by -1.7% according to EIU Country Report 2020 as drivers of Cambodia’s economy - tourism, manufacturing exports and construction – have been significantly impacted by COVID-19.

Cambodia has been one of the top performing economies in Asia, as the country emerges from the social and economic effects of Covid crisis, a rapid return to the high levels of growth seen pre-Covid is anticipated. James will discuss the potential industries, set to benefit from this emergence, and the potential channels of financing available to investors to fund this growth.

The UK Export Finance is the UK’s export credit agency. In the last five years, UKEF provided £14 billion to support for exports and international trade with finance and insurance from the UK government.
