Country Report
The article presents statistical information and forecasts related to economic indicators of Cambodia during the period 2003-06. Cambodia is to grow by 4.0% in 2005. Cambodia's textile sector is holding up better than expected. The textile sector was expected to be hard hit following the expiry of textile quotas, when the Multifibre Arrangement came to an end at the start of 2005. Textiles currently account for 80% of Cambodia's exports, and recent evidence suggesting that the textile sector is performing better than expected should provide a boost for the economy.
