1. Trade balance

As shown in below Figure, the trade performance of Cambodia has been active. The amount of export in 2011 is estimated to have grown by 3.1 times as much as that of 2002. However, since the imports have also kept growing, the balance of trade has remained in the red, quickly widening its gap since 2003. After the exports dropped sharply being affected by the world economic recession, the imports of production and construction materials also drastically decreased. In the last three years, the trade deficit has remained at moderate level.
