Cambodia as a Lower Middle-Income Economy: Challenges and the Way Ahead

EuroCham Luncheons are high-level talks given by senior experts who share economic and policy insights with Cambodia’s top executives. On February 23, Senior Economist Miguel Eduardo Sánchez of the World Bank will share his expertise on:

  • To what extent Cambodia can remain competitive with its new status
  • What is needed to move up the value chain as a production base
  • How to diversify and attract more investments
  • Strategies to further expand the economy after two decades of growth
  • Policies that can enable the above

You can also expect to gain insight into these current economic challenges:

  • Commodity prices that no longer drive agriculture
  • Low-end garments exports within the context of rising salaries
  • USD appreciation and its impact on exports and tourism
  • Capital spending toward buildings instead of machinery
  • Secondary education under-achievements

Cost: $35 for EuroCham members, $45 for non-members
