This article focuses on the banking sector challenge in Cambodia. Cambodia is set to embark on a series of reforms to its banking sector. BMI View: Although the timing is hardly ideal, the government is likely to come under strong pressure to ensure that reforms to the country's still rudimentary banking sector are a success. Cambodia's economy could receive a major boost this year if the government pushes ahead with plans to develop the country's banking system. Reform has, however, been at a virtual standstill since Cambodia's national elections of July 2003, which led to over a year of political deadlock as the main political parties struggled to form a new government.
