Reasons abound why home buyers would want to be bullish on Khmer property soon. Cambodia had one of the fastest-growing economies in the world in 2016, with GDP growth prospects of 6.9 percent until 2018, according to the World Bank. The country has also been tapped to be a major beneficiary of China’s “One Belt, One Road” spending program, with billions in the offing for the country’s infrastructure.

In addition to sound macroeconomic fundamentals, the country has enjoyed unrivaled freehold foreign ownership laws since 2010. It has also taken advantage of its least-developed country (LDC) status to get zero-tariff access to Europe and other highly developed markets.

Some of the region’s best property investment yields have diversified from Phnom Penh to as far as Sihanoukville down south. A comprehensive range of properties, for purposes ranging from retirement to investment, await home buyers of all budgets and purchasing sensibilities in Cambodia.

These and other topics will be discussed at the Cambodia Real Estate Show on 5 and 6 May at the NagaWorld hotel and casino in Phnom Penh.
