This study on Cambodia documents an economy at the crossroads and focuses on the main fiscal and financial sector challenges that Cambodian policymakers face as they chart a path to greater and shared prosperity. It draws on the findings of technical assistance reports and research papers prepared by IMF staff in the context of the IMF’s annual Article IV consultations with Cambodia during 2010–12. Updates with respect to more recent data and developments are as of July 2013.

The study is the result of a group effort and was prepared by a team led by Olaf Unteroberdoerster and comprising Faisal Ahmed, Nombulelo Duma, Tubagus Feridhanusetyawan, Jung Yeon Kim, Rodolfo Maino, Phurichai Rungcharoenkitkul, Jookyung Ree, and Nujin Suphaphiphat. We thank David Cowen, numerous colleagues, and participants in seminars for helpful comments on earlier drafts of the chapters, and Rosanne Heller for editorial assistance. Sun Mi Lee and To-Nhu Dao provided valuable assistance in preparing the manuscript, and Joanne Johnson of the IMF Communications Department managed the editing and production of this publication.
