Cambodia says 200 factories face production halt from coronavirus

About 200 factories making mostly garments will likely suspend operations or slow production next month over a lack of raw materials from China due to supply chain disruptions caused by the new coronavirus, an official said on Thursday.

Labor Ministry spokesman Heng Sour told reporters about 10 factories with about 3,000 workers have already notified the government that they will partially suspend operations.

“From predictions as well as an actual survey about the impact of coronavirus, we know that in March nearly 200 factories will face a lack of raw materials and it will affect about 110,000 workers,” Heng Sour said.
