CENSUS set for 2011

CAMBODIA’S first business census has received funding to begin in March next year, officials say. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japanese government will provide US$2.8 million of the $3.5 million budget to carry out the survey, with the remainder provided by the Kingdom’s government, Minister of Planning Chhay Than said Thursday. Cambodian law says the government must conduct an enterprise census once every 10 years in order to respond to the needs of the macroeconomic sector. National Institute of Statistics Director General Sorn Sithorn said the census would start in March 2011 and last for a month, and that results would be released in 2012. A pilot census conducted by the National Institute of Statistics showed Cambodia has 375,095 total enterprises, not including businesses within the agricultural and mobile sectors.
