Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF)




CEDEP Program Overview:

As noted in the WTO Secretariat Report for Cambodia’s 2011 Trade Policy Review (TPR) Meeting, “with macroeconomic stability firmly entrenched by the time of Cambodia’s ac¬cession to the WTO in 2004, the country embarked on implementing far-reaching reforms to achieve rapid and sustained socioeconomic development. International trade has been crucial to achieving this goal as it has been the driving force behind much of Cambodia’s recent economic growth and poverty reduction, linking its economy more firmly to re¬gional and global markets.”

As noted in the RGC’s report prepare for the aforementioned TPR Meeting, “Cambodia has successfully met the challenges presented by the 2008-2009 world economic crises. However, even since 2008 clearly show the extent of Cambodia’s exposure to external shock. In the period ahead, the Royal Government will be striving to deepen and broaden Cambodia’s integration into the world and regional trading systems. At the same time, the economy’s exposure to negative shocks transmitted through this system must be re¬duced. The diversification of export products and export markets is the key to accomplish¬ing this goal.”

The Ministry of Commerce (MoC) initiated Cambodian Export Diversification and Expansion Program I&I (CEDEP I&II) with Department of International Cooperation (DICO) as National Implementing Unit (NIU) by seeking financial support from Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) to strengthen and diversification export supply capacity in five of the nine Trade SWAp Pillar 2 sectors that have been identified by the Government as export sectors requiring immediate, priority action. They include: rice, silk and M&E function (CEDEP I), cassava, fish and M&E function (CEDEP II), corn, tourism, garment, processing food and manufacturing assembly.
