Cambodia has set the ambitious goal of becoming an upper middle-income country by 2030, and an advance economy by 2050. Since then, substantial changes in regional and global economic trends culminated by the COVID-19 pandemic and geo-political tensions have created numerous obstacles to creating the kind of inclusive and sustainable development Cambodia envisions for its future.
To find pathways forward, Cambodia Development Resource Institute (CDRI) initiated comprehensive research to contribute to this vision. CDRI’s Cambodia Outlook Conference 2023 will discuss the on-going progress from the study and evaluate policy options available from informed future scenarios. The conference serves as a critical platform for more than 500 leaders, including government officials, academics, development partners and global economic experts, to address Cambodia’s most pressing challenges.
On Thursday, 23 November 2023 at Sokha Hotel Phnom Penh, the Cambodia Outlook Conference 2023 will begin with a high-level opening keynote address by the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Samdech Moha Borvor Thipadei HUN MANET, setting the stage for a full day of panel discussions and audience participation.
The conference will then be structured around three pivotal panel discussions. Each session has been curated to focus on key issues surrounding Cambodia’s economic prospects, sustainable development priorities, and potential to learn and grow along its development path.
Each panel discussions aim to offer pragmatic insights, foster critical dialogues, and provide a comprehensive understanding of Cambodia’s development landscape.
The conference will conclude by the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Economy and Finance, HE Dr Aun Pornmoniroth, providing a reflection on the day’s key policy insights for navigating sustainable development as well as closing remarks.
With the 2023 Cambodia Outlook Conference, CDRI continues its commitment to bringing together the most dynamic and influential leaders from Cambodia, Southeast Asia, and beyond to overcome challenges and realize Cambodia’s Vision 2030 and Vision 2050.
This year, CDRI is delighted to be partnering with Australia’s flagship economic development program, the Cambodia Australia Partnership for Resilient Economic Development (CAPRED), the Embassy of Sweden Section Office in Phnom Penh, AEM-METI Economic and Industrial Cooperation Committee, International Development Research Centre, Canada and G GEAR GROUP.
