The objectives of this paper are to identify the most important constraints to achieving higher rates of pro-poor growth in Cambodia, and to propose some public sector expenditure policies that might address these constraints. The approach taken in this study is to look at the objectives, size, composition, and financing of government expenditures since the late 1990s to the present time. There are three problems facing Cambodia that we take up in this paper that public sector expenditure policies in the next years should address. First, there is a high incidence of poverty, particularly in the rural areas (90 percent of the poor), with at least 4 million in 2000 falling below the poverty line. Much of this poverty is caused by the lack of food security. Second, the system of public administration is weak. Third, the amount and quality of the infrastructure is very low outside of the main cities.
