International Economics Consulting Ltd in collaboration with GIZ and Arise + Cambodia and the Government of Cambodia produced a foresight study on trade negotiation options for Cambodia.
As an agricultural exporter, Cambodia has always leveraged trade for fuelling economic growth, job creation, poverty reduction and government revenue generation. As a Least Developed Country, Cambodia has preferential access to several major markets. When it graduates from its LDC status in 2024, preferences will be reduced or removed entirely. Hence, Cambodia is seeking to expand market access through bilateral and
multilateral free trade agreements (FTAs).
The study provides a comprehensive analytical foundation for identifying and prioritising potential free trade agreement (FTA) partners.
