The article reports that the Cambodian government has announced a new initiative to attract foreign investment into the impoverished South East Asian country following the publication of new figures showing that foreign-direct investment (FDI) continues to fall. Under the new initiative announced by Prime Minister Hun Sen, the government will cut the time it takes to issue overseas investors a license from 45 days to 28. One of the most important areas from the new reform initiative, however, is a commitment to cutting corruption in the country— a problem that was acknowledged by the government following the publication of a new survey, in which 80% of the 800 firms questioned admitted the' necessity of paying bribes'.
