Cambodia’s economic freedom score is 57.8, making its economy the 105th freest in the 2019 Index. Its overall score has decreased by 0.9 point, with a steep decline in trade freedom and a lower fiscal health score overwhelming improvements in labor freedom and judicial effectiveness. Cambodia is ranked 22nd among 43 countries in the Asia–Pacific region, and its overall score is below the regional and world averages. Through its “One Belt, One Road” program, China’s influence in Cambodia will continue to grow as it finances major infrastructure projects without making Western-style demands for domestic policy reforms. The economically crucial garment sector is gradually losing its regional cost-competitiveness and has lost tariff-free access to the European Union because of the government’s continuing crackdown on the political opposition. Weak property rights and pervasive corruption continue to constrain economic freedom, and institutionalization of a more independent judiciary remains a key area for reform.
Nominally a democracy, Cambodia has been ruled by former Khmer Rouge member and now Prime Minister Hun Sen since 1985. Hun Sen’s Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) implemented an unprecedented crackdown against the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP) in the lead-up to local elections in 2017 and formalized Cambodia’s status as a one-party state in the 2018 national elections. CNRP leader Kem Sokha is imprisoned, and the party itself was banned and dissolved by the Cambodian Supreme Court. Media have been censored, and civil society groups have been repressed. The economy is still heavily dependent on tourism and the garment industry. More than half of the labor force is engaged in subsistence farming, and Cambodia remains one of Asia’s poorest countries.
Cambodia is ranked 138 among 190 economies in the ease of doing business, according to the latest World Bank annual ratings. The rank of Cambodia deteriorated to 138 in 2018 from 135 in 2017. Ease of Doing Business in Cambodia averaged 136.09 from 2008 until 2018, reaching an all-time high of 145 in 2009 and a record low of 128 in 2015
