Country Profile

Overview

Cambodia FlagIn its post-conflict state, Cambodia, bordered by Thailand, Laos and Viet Nam, is working to rebuild the foundations needed to ensure future growth and development.
The current Government is providing more political stability and economic growth, but Cambodia remains one of Asia’s least developed countries and relies heavily on aid (more than 50% of the government budget comes from donor assistance). Cambodia Coat of Arms
Bilateral trade between New Zealand and Cambodia is modest. Apparel comprises almost half of all imports to New Zealand while exports are dominated by paper and edible preparations of meat.
New Zealand consultancy companies are active in Cambodia, and have been carrying out a range of contracts in water supply and sanitation, resource management, civil engineering and other areas.
In November 2010 Cambodia ratified its participation in the AANZFTA which provides a strong basis for development of the trade relationship.
