Australia is pleased to support the Cambodia Development Resource Institute’s (CDRI) seven recommended reform priorities to implement the government’s Pentagonal Strategy and realise its 2030 Vision and beyond.


The reform priorities include promoting more inclusive and accountable institutions to deliver effective public services, strengthening the Social Protection System, modernising the agricultural sector, sustainably investing in Cambodia’s natural resources, continuing to upgrade and diversify the manufacturing sector, and investing in quality education, skills building, and digital infrastructure.


These reform priorities were generated from the Cambodia Outlook Conference held in Phnom Penh in November 2023 and are part of an on-going research study entitled “Cambodia Vision 2030: An Assessment of Cambodia’s Upper middle-income Target for Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Growth”.  Australia is funding both the conference and the research study through its flagship economic development program, the Cambodia Australia Partnership for Resilient Economic Development (CAPRED).
