Khmer: Economic growth slows amid corruption crisis

The government has tightened its grip on the economy amid growing corruption allegations.

Here are some economic indicators to watch.


Trade in goods has dropped in 2016, as the government attempts to stem a slowdown in exports.

In the first six months of 2017, the value of goods imports fell 2.9% compared with the same period last year.


Manufacturing output has slowed in the country, but growth in construction activity and manufacturing has increased.


Businesses are trying to limit exposure to corruption as they try to improve their bottom lines.

The economy, which has grown by 5.4% annually since 2000, has also struggled with a shrinking population and a growing number of retirees.


Corruption remains a big problem.

The government is trying to curb it, but corruption remains a concern, and is continuing to grow, said Mark Thieng, head of market research at China Analytics.


Unemployment in the Khmer Rouge’s country of 8.4 million people, which was invaded by Cambodia’s government in 1975, has risen from 6.8% to over 25%.

There are also reports of some deaths due to poisoning and other illnesses linked to tainted food.


The United States has made its position clear on Cambodia.

The U.S. State Department has accused the Cambodian government of failing to protect its citizens from the ongoing unrest.

“There is a real risk that we could see a new wave of violence in Cambodia and could put lives at risk,” Secretary of State John Kerry said during a visit to Cambodia last week.

“It is very important that we do everything possible to prevent it from happening.”


The country’s tourism industry is in trouble.

Tourism has taken a hit in the last year and is still growing in Cambodia.

A lot of the tourism in Cambodia comes from China, which is now the country’s biggest trading partner.

But the country also has a large Chinese diaspora.


The International Monetary Fund has cut its outlook for Cambodia and its economic growth.

While it still expects Cambodia to recover from the current economic crisis, it expects the country to lose its lead role in the global economy, the IMF said.


The number of refugees in Cambodia has declined dramatically in the past five years.

The numbers are still higher than in the early 1990s, but they have come down in recent years.


The Khmer government has stepped up efforts to combat the effects of the recent earthquakes.

It is building up an anti-seismic unit, and its military is also ramping up efforts in the area.

The army has also started training troops in countermeasures to the tremors.

The UN estimates that 1.5 million people have been displaced.
