Cambodia Securities Market Overview
While banks have been the main source of funding for businesses in Cambodia, this will soon change with the opening of securities markets.

The Securities and Exchange Commission of Cambodia (SECC) regulates the Cambodia Securities Exchange (CSX) in Cambodia . The SECC is established under the law on The
