This study tries to find out how the long-term and short-term relationship between several
variables related to economic growth such as CO2 emissions, internet literacy, and
education in Cambodia. We use the World Bank as a supplementary source for statistics
data, namely data from 2000 to 2020. We learn from our estimating findings that the
elements we predicted, including economic development and internet literacy, have both
long- and short-term associations, as well as economic growth and education, which in the
short term internet literacy has a significant positive effect on economic growth. In line
with that, the level of education also has a significant positive effect on economic growth.
In contrast to the statistically significant inverse association between the economic growth
variable for this year and the economic growth for the prior year, there is also a
relationship between co2 emissions and economic growth. This shows that increasing
internet literacy, in the short and long term will also increase economic growth, as well as
education levels. In contrast, CO2 emissions have an inverse correlation with the gross
domestic product which represents economic growth in Cambodia.
