Executive summary

Cambodia has demonstrated a strong capacity for rebirth and resilience. The Khmer Rouge period removed a generation of politicians, judges and other civil servants, technical experts and skilled workers, and many others. Land titles were completely destroyed. The civil strife which followed inflicted further damage on whatever infrastructure remained. Starting from the Paris Peace Agreement in 1991, Cambodia has been one of the fastest growing economies worldwide which has made Cambodia one of the best performers in terms of reducing poverty.
