ABSTRACT
There is no end in sight to the political paralysis that has gripped Cambodia since last July's general election. The Cambodian government is aiming to attract 1mn tourist visitors in 2004, an increase from 750,000 visitors recorded in 2003. Cambodia has stepped up investment in its tourist infrastructure in recent years, including more money for hotels, transport infrastructure, and a US $10mn water supply project partly financed by the Asian Development Bank. Cambodia's short-term economic risk rating remains on 52.0%, with the booming tourism sector already including in our ratings.
