From the group’s presentation, I learned that Cambodia is heavily reliant on its Tourism industry. Events such as outbreaks and riots, will affect the economy by affecting the tourism sector. Furthermore, just as Cambodia was becoming economically sound, the Global Financial Crisis hit and Cambodia’s efforts to better its economy were in vain. A lot of the problems have risen due to Cambodia’s history and the notorious dictator Pol Pot who tried to kill off all the elite and intelligent people out of society. Cambodia can improve their situation by receiving foreign aid, developing jobs and educating it’s youth.
