The Federal Republic of Germany established official relations with Cambodia’s Supreme National Council (SNC) in 1992. Relations are friendly and Germany actively supports Cambodia in its development and democratization process. The cornerstone of bilateral relations is the extensive development cooperation between the two countries.
In addition, Germany has for many years been funding a mine clearance programme and has helped with conservation efforts at the Angkor Wat temple complex. Bilateral development cooperation focuses on rural development and health care. There are also projects addressing the cross-cutting issues of good governance, human rights and promoting democracy.
