Delving into the theme of Revitialising Cambodia: Sustaining Development After Covid-19, the 14th Cambodia Outlook Conference, will take place on 6 October 2022 at Sokha Phnom Penh, Hotel and Residence. The keynote address will be presided over by Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techno HUN SEN, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia.


This CDRI’s flagship conference will convene over 400 local and international leaders from national and subnational levels of government, development partners, private sectors, think-tanks, academics, and other civil societies to explore on three topics under the main theme:


Sustaining development in a fractious post-Covid world


Priorities for a future development strategy


Priorities for revitalizing Cambodia’s development model

Sustaining development in a fractious post-Covid world.

This panel will focus on the big picture ways in which the global and regional economy is changing and the challenges and opportunities this presents for development. This includes digital transformation, the future of globalisation and regional integration, climate change and environmental pressures, financing development, and how geopolitics is shaping all of these. Speakers will discuss what the new “normal” looks like and what this means for how governments, business, civil society, and donors need to think about development strategy.

Priorities for Cambodia’s future development strategy

This panel will discuss how well did Cambodia’s pre-Covid development strategy perform? What were its strengths and weaknesses? What are the implications of Covid-19 and the emerging post-Covid world for Cambodia’s future development strategy? What is reasonably clear and what requires further thought? Finally, how can government, business, civil society, and development partners work together to navigate the uncertain development outlook?

Priorities for revitalizing Cambodia’s development model

This panel discussion will centre on how Cambodia can not only sustain rapid developmental progress but also shift towards higher quality development, especially through strengthening the public health system, achieving more sustainable and inclusive agricultural development, improving human resources, digital and technological innovation, and industrial upgrading to modernise Cambodia’s economy. The discussion will focus on what is needed in terms of both immediate priority actions and longer-term strategic directions.
