Governance no better: WB

A World Bank report on governance found that Cambodia had shown no improvement in

several key indicators between 1996 and 2006 - including corruption and the rule

of law. The report stated that while Cambodia had improved its political stability

it had shown little or no improvement in other categories. For many of the indicators,

including the ability of the government to foster business, as well as freedom of

expression and democracy, the report showed a decline. The report rated Cambodia

as one the worst countries in ASEAN, ahead of only Myanmar. In the case of the rule

of law, 92 percent of countries worldwide were rated better than Cambodia.
