About Cambodia 2040

In the years since Cambodia signed the Paris Peace Accords in 1991, the Kingdom has experienced drastic change – economically, culturally, geopolitically. As we look ahead to the next few decades, what path will Cambodia take?

  • How are the diverse sectors of Cambodian society and the Cambodian economy likely to develop?

  • How will Cambodia respond to various global trends, as a relatively small country in a region of growing global geopolitical and economic importance?

  • Will Cambodia’s economy prosper or stagnate? Will Cambodia become a middle income state, remain at its current lower middle income level, or drop back to the status of a low income state?

The Cambodia 2040 books are the first to bring together a collection of experts, utilizing a single methodology, to set out the various potential scenarios that Cambodia is likely to confront two decades from now. Employing a shared, foresighting model, each author examines their particular area of expertise in order to illustrate the potential paths that Cambodia could follow.
