Abstract

By 2016 Cambodians were not just enjoying something very much like genuine peace, they were also working hard to gain something close to real wealth. For the first time since the Paris Peace Accords were signed in 1991, Cambodia won the designation as a lower middle-income country, up one notch from low-income country status on the World Bank’s international growth classifications. This chapter examines Cambodia’s recent decade-plus growth, with a focus on growth with equity.
