World Bank report

The World Bank released a major report on social inequality in Cambodia on June 12,

which concluded that the increase in inequality was not structurally destabilizing

to the country. The Equity Report was launched in the presence of Prime Minister

Hun Sen, and was prepared for the Cambodian Development Cooperation Forum to be held

next week, which will assess whether the government has met the benchmarks set by

donor nations. The report found that the majority of inequality emerged in the period

between 1994 and 1997, while between 1997 and 2004 there was no significant increase

in inequality. But some critics at the launch doubted the "robustness"

of the reports findings, which they said were based on limited measures for assessing

inequality.
