Elusive equality


Study find boosting women’s opportunities can boost growth, but there’s a long road ahead

Improving women’s access to jobs and economic opportunity could significantly boost productivity in Cambodia, according to World Bank report published in June. But, the study’s authors added, women’s economic progress has been slower in the Kingdom than in many other countries in the region and the government should work to level the gender playing field.
The study found that if women were to work in the same sectors as men and have the same access to resources, worker output in the Asia-Pacific region could be 7 to 18 percent higher.
