Country Report
The article presents a political and economic risk profile of Cambodia as of June 2005. The Cambodian government is becoming increasingly autocratic, and the country's democracy is a "shaky facade," the United Nation's human rights envoy has warned. Addressing the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, Peter Leuprecht said that the measures taken by Prime Minister Hun Sen violate the fundamental principle of pluralist democracy. In its recent report on the Cambodian economy, the Asian Development Bank has estimated total external debt at 68 percent of GDP. However, debt owed by Cambodia to the Russian Federation and the U.S. is being renegotiated, and is not currently being serviced. Thailand has lent Cambodia 7.6mn U.S. dollar to help construct a highway linking the two countries
