As in many countries, COVID-19 has put the brakes on Cambodia’s rapid economic growth. Although a pillar of the Kingdom’s economy with 150,000 estimated workers involved, the Real Estate & Construction sector has also been hit.
Prior to the pandemic, Cambodia’s construction boom looked set to continue, with a total of 728 projects valued at over US$2 billion approved in the first two months of 2020 by the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction. However, since the outbreak of COVID-19 the market has slowed: rental prices have fallen, property prices have dropped, and some projects have been delayed. The strength of a potential rebound in 2020 will depend on various domestic and external factors.
To discuss this topic, EuroCham will be hosting a live webinar with expert speakers on the Cambodian Real Estate & Construction Sector: Updates During COVID-19 on Thursday 16th July, at 3pm.
The webinar is limited to 100 live participants only. Please make sure to register early to guarantee your spot!
