  4. Cambodia: Designing macroeconomic policies for an employment - friendly growth strategy

    31 October 2013

    This paper authored by Muhammed Muqtada and Luyna Ung represents one of the background analyses. It argues for a proactive stance on macroeconomic policymaking, if Cambodia wishes to grow in a sustained and diversified manner toward full and productive employment for all. It notes that the current policy space is restricted, partly due to the additional conditionality that the defacto dollarization of the economy imposes. The paper suggests a possible nexus of mutually reinforcing macroeconomic and structural reforms, through examples of policy actions that could be taken in the spheres of monetary, fiscal, and exchange-rate policies.

    31 October 2013

The paper also argues that rural households consider subsistence farming as a safety net and a lifeline in the event of economic downturns.
