ABSTRACT
The article reports on the status of foreign investment in Cambodia. The 2007 Approved Investment Report, jointly released by the Cambodian Development Council (CDC) and the Cambodian Investment Board (CIB), has revealed that total foreign investment in the country in 2007 fell to $2.7 billion from $4.3 billion in 2006, a decline of 37.2%. It adds that it can be attributed to a lower physical infrastructure score weighing upon the infrastructure sub-rating and a weaker bureaucracy score.
