Monitoring the Cambodia Trade and Integration Strategy Update (CTISU)

The Project at A Glance

As a newly classified Lower-Middle Income Country, according to the World Bank, Cambodia is seeking to consolidate and maintain its impressive track record of socio-economic progress and reach Upper-Middle-Income Country status by 2030. In this context, the fourth update of the Cambodia Trade Integration Strategy (CTIS) 2019-2023 represents a key document to ensure that trade continues to play a key part in Cambodia’s development.

International Economics (IEC), with funding from the GIZ, supported the Department of International Cooperation of the Cambodian Ministry of Commerce in fulfilling its role as Secretariat and National Implementation Unit of the CTISU, including effective engagement of all relevant stakeholders and the monitoring of all implementation activities.

What We Found

The project’s overall objective was to undertake a mapping of all relevant players who would be involved in the implementation of the CTIS, identifying their ongoing and future activities, budgets, and timing. In the case of governmental bodies, this project was instrumental in identifying needs (budgetary and capacity building) to be covered by development partners’ assistance. The team also mapped and found solutions to the engagement of such organisations.

Our Strategy and Impact

International Economics undertook a comprehensive mapping of all actors having a direct or indirect impact in implementing the CTIS Roadmap. A monitoring and evaluation tool was also prepared by the team to monitor the contribution of the identified actors in implementing the CTIS. The final report was used by the Cambodian Ministry of Commerce to manage implementation of the CTIS on a yearly basis through an inter-ministerial mechanism prepared during the CTIS update formulation process.
