Country Report
The two main political parties in Cambodia appear close to agreement after last year's disputed general election which left the South East Asian country in political deadlock. Only once a new government is formed will it be possible to ratify a number of key pieces of legislation, including a long-delayed Khmer Rouge genocide trial. According to the Asian Development Bank's latest report on Cambodia, incidence of poverty in the country remains at 35-40% of the population— one of the highest rates in the region, with other social indicators also amongst the lowest in the world.
