Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen has unveiled a suite of measures, including tax cuts, aimed at mitigating the double economic blow of the new coronavirus and looming new European Union tariffs.
In a speech on Monday, the longtime leader said Covid-19 had dealt a blow to the country’s tourism and apparel sectors. Cambodia is set for a 60% drop in visitors in February, with Chinese visitors down 90%, he said.
The country’s apparel sector, meanwhile, is largely dependent on China for raw materials and is on the verge of running out of stock.
