The Cambodian Government will postpone all its construction projects in a bid to earmark the budget for fighting the possible COVID-19 outbreak, Prime Minister Hun Sen said on March 4.

Khmer Times cited the PM as saying at the Health Ministry’s annual meeting in Phnom Penh that all construction projects by the government have not yet been started and need to be procrastinated unless they are jointly funded by foreigners.

Cambodia can put off all constructions till next year as its need to know how much money it has in hands after the containment of COVID-19, according to him.
