France and Cambodia enjoy close relations, stemming partly from the days of the French Protectorate and partly from the role played by France in the signing of the peace agreements in Paris in 1991, and further cemented by the French language.*
These relations are gradually adapting to Cambodia’s growing integration into its regional environment and its progress towards the status of a Middle Income Country, hopefully by 2020.
The "Orientation and Cooperation Document" signed in 2010, steers our cooperation towards the following goal: "supporting economic growth and job creation in Cambodia by developing human capital and promoting French private investment".
