For example, the price of land in Cambodia has been increasing by up to 20 per cent a year since 2017, with residential and commercial prices in the country boosted by over 10 per cent a year from 2017 until now, Jirawuth Suwannaarj, the director and minister counsellor (commercial) of Cambodia’s International Trade Promotion Department of the Commerce Ministry, said in a recent interview with The Nation.
