ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the various risks involved in investing in Cambodia. An election for the Senate will be held in 2006. This followed passage of the new Senate election law by the National Assembly in May 2005. The new law has changed the way in which Senators are elected by extending the vote to commune chiefs. The approach to the Senate elections may be accompanied by heightened political tension. The assessment of the international donor community towards Cambodia's reforms continues to be mixed. There is an ever present danger that aid will be reduced or even cut, which would have serious implications for growth and business confidence.
