India and Cambodia cooperate in a number of multilateral and regional fora. Cambodia has time and again reiterated this support at various international fora and during bilateral interactions. In the      context of our ‘Act East’ policy and the ASEAN, Cambodia is an important interlocutor and a good partner. Currently, Cambodia is the country coordinator for India in the ASEAN.  India has extended bilateral financial assistance to Cambodia through grants and lines of credit.

The Cambodian Government has been working with bilateral and multilateral donors, including the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank and IMF, to address the country's many pressing needs; more than 30% of the government budget comes from donor assistance. A major economic challenge for Cambodia over the next decade will be fashioning an economic environment in which the private sector can create enough jobs to handle Cambodia's demographic imbalance.
