Book: Industrializing Cambodia: Making a Roadmap to Construct Core Industrial Clusters in Kampong Speu
This book is published in cooperation with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) and the Korea University Research & Business Foundation in 2016 as a public-private cooperation project subsidized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
It is a product of a two-year research project for the development of Cambodia. In the first year, we investigated why and how the country can become a bridging state in Southeast Asia. A bridging state is a state that connects men and commodities. It thus promotes peace among intra-regional states and inter-regional states. Given the geopolitical and geoeconomic environment in which Cambodia is situated, we proposed
a vision and action plan for bridging state strategy for the country. In line with the macro-level strategy, in the second year we explored a micro-level strategy about how Cambodia can become an economic hub of Southeast Asia through industrialization. The outcome of the exploration is the plan to build core industrial clusters in Kampong Speu province in this book.
