Cambodia To Achieve 7.2% Economic Growth This Year
AKP Phnom Penh, April 09, 2013 —
Cambodia’s economy is expected to remain vigorous over the next two years as Cambodia’s main markets in Europe and United States recover, Asian Development Bank (ADB) said in a new report.
“Economic growth is projected at 7.2 percent in 2013, picking up to 7.5 percent next year as recovery in Europe and the U.S. takes hold,” said Eric Sidgwick, ADB Country Director for Cambodia, in a news release issued this morning.
Private consumption, exports and investment, including strong and diversified foreign direct investment, will all drive economic development in 2013 and 2014, he added.
ADB further said Cambodia’s industry is expected to expand by 10.5 percent in 2013, as European demand for Cambodian products is expected to grow steadily, supported by duty-free access to the European market. Shipments of garments and footwear to the U.S. will likely be subdued this year but should pick up after that.
The report notes that net foreign direct investment inflows surged by an estimated 75 percent in 2012, to US$1.5 billion, funding new industries including automotive parts, electronics, and processing of agricultural products, as well as diversifying garment production into higher-value products and tourism into new areas. A surge in building approvals in 2012 will accelerate construction activity this year. The services sector is expected to grow by about 7 percent, with strong growth in tourism and real estate activity. Agriculture will likely grow by 4 percent, assuming favorable weather.
Moderate global food price increases and domestic harvests lead to expectations that inflation will average about 3.0 percent in 2013, it said, adding that in 2014, robust domestic demand is expected to result in higher inflation of 3.5 percent. These inflation forecasts will be at risk if bad weather pushes up food prices.
According to the report, while Cambodia’s growth prospects remain positive, chronic poor health and malnutrition is stunting the growth of 40 percent of Cambodian children. Left unaddressed, Cambodia’s continuing high incidence of child malnutrition will negatively affect future productivity and economic growth due to the associated irreversible long-term damage to physical and cognitive development.
