Cambodia’s economic development has been fast paced. To keep growth sustainable and strong, there are three priority areas on which the government should focus in the medium term. First, agriculture, and rice production in particular, need to be further developed. The government has introduced a new system of rice intensification (SRI) to improve the productivity of rice-field irrigation and has taken measures to diversify the agricultural sector. The second priority is to further develop the prudential and supervisory framework of the financial sector to ensure financial stability in a context of fast credit growth. Finally, development of the tourism sector needs to be strengthened by increasing the number of destinations available to tourists and by improving transport and other key infrastructure.
