7. Project Rationale
  • The real estate sector in Cambodia has experienced booming and crisis moments over the past decades, and is expected to face another period of volatility going forward due to an expected over supply in certain sub-segments of the sector. For instance, an oversupply is expected in the condominium segment, as there are manty on-going projects and the demand is more for the overseas buyers. The demand is seen low due to less unfavorable external conditions.
  • With lack of proper recording/registration of the transactions in the real estate activities, it is very challenging to assess the market situation (demand & supply), and associated capital inflows. This would not likely indicate accurate capital inflows into the country’s balance of payments (BOP) as a whole. How to assess more accurately the BOP?
