Since the end of the Cold War in the mid 1980s, Cambodia's importance for Thailand has greatly increased. The range of Thai stakeholders in Thai-Cambodian relations has expanded. The national security sector, which used to dominate the relationship, has been reduced to a minor role, concentrating on narrow issues of border security. The state in general has adopted a collaborative role, focusing on securing and regulating supplies of immigrant labor.

Thailand's two largest corporate groups, PTT and SCG, have launched ventures in Cambodia as key projects in their international expansion.
