Cambodia: Sharing the benefits of sustained growth

  1. 1. “The most important determinant of a country’s competitiveness is its human talent - the skills, education and productivity of its workforce. And women account for one half of the potential talent base throughout the world. Over time, therefore, a nation’s competitiveness depends significantly on whether and how it educates and utilizes its female talent. To maximize its competitiveness and development potential, each country should strive for gender equality - such as to give women the same rights, responsibilities and opportunities as men” www.weforum.org The Global Gender Gap Report_2009_P24
  2. 2.  Gender Equality will pay off with tangible value added in the longterm.
  3. 3.  Disparities in competitiveness in ASEAN requires tailor made solutions and strategies for each country.
  4. 4.  Public investments to increase productivity need to address inequality in access to education by incorporating technical and vocational education elements.
  5. 5.  The “entrepreneurial spirit” becomes the essential lubricant for a nation's ability to succeed in a fast changing and ever more competitive global marketplace.
  6. 6. ICT can contribute to “inclusive and sustainable” development – by connecting and “including” people at the “bottom of the pyramid”.  Even people in remote rural locations are able to build far-reaching networks that are essential for trade and increasing the efficiency of doing business.
