Economy of Cambodia

Almost 90% of Cambodia’s population live in rural areas, so it’s hardly surprising that agriculture is the primary industry of Cambodia. Rice, rubber, cassava, sweet potatoes, corn, soybeans, and tobacco are the main products. Cambodia also manufactures cement, rubber, cigarettes, and garments. Though rubies are mined for export, it is tourism that is the top foreign exchange earner.

After 4 years of promising macroeconomic performance, Cambodia's economy slowed in 1997-98, following the regional economic crisis, and foreign investment declined. Even given political and economic stability, the task of long-term economic development after decades of conflict remains huge.
