Subject Highlights


Cambodia has undertaken several initiatives to attract foreign direct investment (fdi), which has been growing rapidly in recent years, particularly through participating in Association of South East Asian Nations (asean) investment agreements and free trade agreements (ftas). This chapter first outlines Cambodia’s arbitration law and practice, its Law on Investment, the court system, problems relating to corruption, and foreign direct investment (fdi) patterns. It then surveys trends in Cambodia’s comparatively belated signing of investment treaties, and their main contents (including recent treaties with India and Hungary, adopting very different models). The chapter then discusses the only investment arbitration instituted against Cambodia, which was successfully defended, followed by a comment on the future prospects for Cambodia’s investment treaty program.
