ABSTRACT
The article presents economic conditions of Cambodia. Eight months after the July 2003 elections, Cambodia still has no government. The Cambodian People's Party of Prime Minister Hun Sen came first in the elections, but fell short of the two-thirds majority needed to rule alone. China has announced plans to help Cambodia build a 225km railway, which will eventually form part of a railway line that will stretch between Kunming in southwest China to Singapore. The link, when completed, will provide a significant boost to Cambodia's infrastructure, which is among the least developed in the region.
