Country Report
Cambodia's two main political parties have agreed a renewed coalition almost 11 months after elections. Under the agreement, Prime Minister Hun Sen will retain his position while his Cambodian People's Party will gain 60% of the cabinet seats in the new government. The royalist Funcinpec party, led by Prince Norodom Ranariddh, will gain 40% of the cabinet seats. The resolution to Cambodia's year-long political crisis is expected to provide a boost to Cambodia's economy by reducing uncertainty among international investors, and boosting domestic consumer confidence.
