The article presents information on political, economic and business risks of Cambodia. A two-year-old Canadian boy was killed at an international school in Cambodian city of Siem Reap, after a gunman took dozens of pupils and teachers hostage in the middle of June. The Cambodian economy is expected to grow by up to 6% in 2005, according to the International Monetary Fund. The stronger than previously forecast growth is due to a big increase in tourist arrivals, a booming construction sector, and unexpected strength in the textile sector. A United Nations human rights investigator has called on Cambodia to cancel a state land grant to a Chinese company for a pine tree plantation, claiming that it violates the human rights of indigenous people.
