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%.

Key Trends And Developments

Despite the fact that negotiations between Prime Minister Hun Sen and opposition leader Sam Rainsy to overhaul the National Election Committee failed in April, renewed meetings in late May suggest that the dialogue between the two parties remains open.

  • According to officials, construction on China Railway Group's proposed USD7.5bn north-south railway line has been postponed due to funding shortages. Construction on the project has yet to begin despite the fact that it was announced in December 2012. Reports suggest that the project is still in the feasibility study stage, which was delayed by 2013's political instability.

  • In late March, the T120MW Atai hydropower plant started operating in the Cambodian province of Pursat. Under a 34-year build-operate-transfer concession with the Cambodian government, China Datang Corporation built the plant and its transmission line. The power plant, costing USD255mn, is expected to generate 465mn kWh of electricity a year. The USD113mn transmission grid will supply electricity Phnom Penh...
