Cambodia Infrastructure Report

BMI View: Cambodia's infrastructure sector failed to maintain its red hot pace of expansion in 2013, with real growth dropping from 16.3% to 6.4%. Al though 2013 saw a return of foreign investment and an increase in domestic project financing in Cambodia, several risks continue to dampen the near-term growth potential of the sector - namely greater policy uncertainty following the outcome of the July 2013 general elections - growing competition from Myanmar, limited upside to foreign investment and the resolution of land disputes in the favour of local residents. We therefore envisage only a moderate pick-up in activity for 2014, with the industry's real growth forecasted at 8.2%.

  • In November 2013, officials at the Sihanoukville Autonomous Port announced the construction of a new multi-purpose terminal is scheduled to start in 2014. The US$80mn project is funded by a loan from the Japanese government and is scheduled to be completed in 2016. In January 2014 the weight of goods transported through the port grew by an impressive 26% year-on-year (y-o-y), reflecting...
