    Assessment of Public–Private Partnerships in Cambodia

    Constraints and Opportunities

    The Cambodian economy recovered strongly after the financial crisis in 2008, with increasing levels of foreign direct investment (FDI). The country has many attractive features for investors, including a low-cost workforce, improving transport connectivity with neighboring countries, and a large and growing consumer base. There are substantial underutilized resources in the agriculture sector, and the government is starting to develop a small oil industry, with first production expected in late 2012. Despite the many positive characteristics of the economy, the business climate for the private sector is challenging. Cambodia was ranked 147 out of 174 countries in the World Bank’s Doing Business survey for 2011. In a similar study...

    Engaging Local Private Operators in Water Supply and Sanitation Services

    Initial lessons from emerging experience in Cambodia, Colombia, Paraguay, The Philippines, and Uganda

    This paper examines the experience of developing local private sector participation (PSP) in small and medium-size towns in Cambodia, Colombia, Paraguay, The Philippines, and Uganda. The paper, which reviews schemes supported by the World Bank, summarizes information on the contracts and the selection process, extracts lessons learned to date from the cases, and recommends follow-up activities to address some key issues and fill gaps that were identified in the course of the study. An overarching lesson from this study is that innovation and adaptation are essential to the successful introduction of local PSP. Designing interventions that include a process of innovation, adaptation, and refinement is the first step in ensuring that...

    Opportunities and Challenges for Small Scale Private Service Providers in Electricity and Water Supply Evidence from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Kenya, and the Philippines

    This study provides an in-depth look at Small Scale Private Service Providers (SPSPs) of electricity and water and is based on a recent firm-level survey conducted in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Kenya, and the Philippines. The findings of the survey analysis reveal a relatively diverse group of small enterprises with different ownership structures, business models, and levels of profitability. Services range from well-organized networks such as electric mini-grids and small private water networks (SPNs), to mobile distributors of water (tankers), and smaller operations such as battery charging stations, water kiosks, and standpipes. From the analysis of the different types of service providers, it is possible to identify some of the specific...

    PPP Procurement Manual, Cambodia

    Revised first draft

    A key purpose of this PPP Procurement Manual is to clarify the implementing rules and regulations to support the provisions of Cambodia’s Law on Concessions (LoC), as amended. This PPP Procurement Manual is issued both to ensure assigned RGC officials, private sector participants and all stakeholders are aware of the Government’s policies on PPP transactions and to provide step-by-step tendering procedures for those public sector officials authorized to perform their important PPP development function. Currently, GCA are carrying out PPP in accordance with applicable laws and regulations; however, after considering the alternatives, the Government decided to adopt the enabling framework to promulgate this interim regulation to specific...
