Financial Institutions

The National Bank of Cambodia (NBC) is Cambodia’s central bank. It is responsible for supervising and regulating all the financial institutions in Cambodia. It is also responsible for managing money transactions, credit, domestic, international settlements and foreign exchange.
The commercial banking sector is undergoing major changes. In 1999 the National Assembly passed strict new laws boosting the minimum capital requirements for commercial banks in an effort to strengthen the country's financial sector. The minimum capital requirements were raised from US$5 million to US$13 million. Although the new laws intended to shore up the financial sector, one result is that several commercial banks have shut down because of their inability or unwillingness to meet the higher capital requirements.
Eleven banks have already been closed down since the new legislation took effect. Fifteen additional banks have until the end of 2001 to increase their capital to US$13 million, and because of the high requirements, further consolidation of the sector is likely to occur.
Of the 30 previous commercial banks, only four have had their licenses renewed as of December 2000: May Bank, Cambodia Public Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and First Commercial Bank. Before the reform of the financial sector, Cambodia's banking industry had a mix of state-owned banks, joint ventures, private domestic banks, and wholly foreignowned banks.
Below is the contact information of 30 commercial banks in operation before the capital requirement was raised. However, because of the ongoing consolidation of the financial sector, some of the information in this chart will not be valid.

Road network

There are over 3,200 kilometres of national roads, 31,000 kilometres of provincial roads and about 28,000 kilometres of tertiary roads in Cambodia. Only 7.5 percent of the roads were paved as of 1998. The main road network links Phnom Penh, the capital, with the provincial capitals.

Air transport

Cambodia has eleven airports throughout the country, including two international airports in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The domestic airports are located in Siem Reap, Krong Preah Sihanouk, Kampong Chhnang, Koh Kong, Battambang, Rattana Kiri, Stung Treng, Mondol Kiri, Preah Vihear, and Kratie.


Cambodia has two main railway lines at present. The first line runs from Phnom Penh to Battambang to Sisophon. The second line runs from Phnom Penh to Kampot to the port at Sihanoukville.


The capital, Phnom Penh, has most of the telecommunication network facilities. The telecommunications system is comprised of a mixture of wireless systems, cellular mobile systems, old local networks and a few (1,500) newly installed IDD lines.
In 1997-98, there were an estimated 23,000 telephone subscribers, of whom 6,500 were cable landlines and the rest made up largely of mobile telephone subscribers.

Other Infrastructure


International ports

Sihanoukville port on the southwest coast is the principal and only deep-water maritime port in Cambodia. It can accommodate ships of 10,000-15,000 tons deadweight. There are two other important ports in Phnom Penh and Koh Kong. Phnom Penh port, a traditional river port, is accessible to vessels from South China through Viet Nam. Koh Kong port is made up of three smaller ports and acts as a docking bay for vessels from Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand entering Cambodia.
