200 factories could suspend operations: Labor Ministry

Two-hundred factories could suspend their production this month due to a lack of raw materials imported from China, a Labor Ministry spokesman said.

Speaking at the Council of Ministers in Phnom Penh last week, Heng Sour said 10 factories had already suspended their operations, affecting 3,000 workers, due to disruptions to the supply chain caused by the coronavirus in China.

“March could see nearly 200 factories face suspension due to a law of raw materials, affecting about 160,000 workers,” Sour said.
