ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the political and economic risk in Cambodia. The leader of the opposition party, Sam Rainsy, has been forced to flee the country, after Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sen stripped him of his parliamentary immunity. Hun Sen took the unusual step after Sam Rainsy accused the Prime Minister of trying to kill him in a grenade attack in 1997. Cambodia's short-term political risk rating has been reduced from 61.0 to 60.0. In a recent visit to the country, James Wolfensohn, the president of the World Bank, has urged the Cambodian government to do more to promote good governance and fight corruption.
