ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the discussions between Cambodia and a range of Asian and Middle Eastern governments looking to invest up to US$3 billion in its agricultural sector. Cambodia has a total of 6.0mn hectares of arable land, of which only 2.5mn hectares are currently being cultivated. New investment pledges from abroad will help cushion the blow from slowing investment and is also expected to help overcome the declining foreign direct investment in other areas of the economy.
