Cambodia

Home of the ancient architectural wonders of the Khmer civilization, today’s Cambodia is a society re-emerging from the genocide of the Khmer Rouge regime and the disaster of the agrarian revolution. Between 1975 and 1979 the regime of Pol Pot was responsible for the killing of between 1.7 and 2.2 million of the country’s population, or approximately 20-30 percent. Since the countries liberation in 1979 by the Vietnamese army, Cambodia has struggled to rebuild its society, economy and infrastructure and its overall development remains considerably behind most of the other nations in Southeast Asia.
