Pro-competitive policies in Cambodia’s logistics sector can help boost economic growth. Cambodia’s transportation and storage market represents around 8% of the country’s economy and was worth USD 2.1 billion in 2019.
In terms of overall logistics performance, Cambodia ranked 98 out of 160 in the World Bank’s Global Logistics Performance Index in 2018.
In 2020, Cambodia’s economy shrunk by around 3 % due to the COVID-19 pandemic but e-commerce is growing rapidly and could contribute to the country’s quick recovery.
Fostering competition in ASEAN was a project that reviewed regulatory constraints on competition in the logistics sector in all ten ASEAN member countries to identify regulations that hinder the efficient functioning of markets and create an unlevel playing field for business.
It comprised two parallel components: competition assessment reviews of specific logistics sub-sectors and competitive neutrality reviews of small-package delivery services. The project was undertaken in partnership with ASEAN and funded by the UK Prosperity Fund (UK Government).

Two reports, a competition assessment of the logistics sector and the competitive neutrality review of small-package delivery services were virtually launched in co-operation with Cambodia's Consumer Protection Competition and Fraud Repression Directorate-General.
