Cambodia opens 77 new factories in Q1 amid Covid-19 outbreak

Some 77 new factories, including 34 garment, footwear, and travel goods factories, had opened in Cambodia in the first quarter of 2020 despite the Covid-19 pandemic, a spokesman said here on Thursday (April 23).

“The 77 new factories have created jobs for 27,909 people,” Heng Sokkung, a secretary of state and spokesman for the Ministry of Industry, Science, Technology, and Innovation, said during a press conference.

“Although some factories have seen a drop in purchase orders at the moment, they will see opportunities when Covid-19 is over,” he said, adding,”After the Covid-19, potential buyers will resume their purchase orders and demand will be on the rise.”
