Cambodia - Report of economic mission - 1969 : The main report (Inglês)

This economic report claims that it is clear that in the process of Cambodian’s nation-building, political aims prevailed over strictly economic objectives. With the present government, the primary internal objective is political stability supported by an effort at promoting social progress. Single-minded pursuit of GDP growth, irrespective of income distribution and social relations, is an idea foreign not only to the Chief of State but to nearly all Cambodians. The emphasis on social equality is reinforced by the observation that large differences in wealth exist along ethnic differences, with the Chinese minority commanding disproportionate economic power. Another factor is that Prince Sihancuk personally seems to be influenced by the Physiocrat school of thought, where agricultural pursuits rank highest in productivity, while commercial and other service activities are looked upon as more or less parasitic. It is against this general background, which in part also explains the relatively modest economic growth targets of Cambodia's five-year plans that one has to view the limited success so far achieved in gearing the administration to the promotion of economic development.
