China prioritises supplying raw garment materials to Cambodia

An official of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce has revealed that China may prioritise fulfilling Cambodia’s immediate demand for raw materials to enable local factories to continue operating, Khmer Times reported.

Thousands of jobs are at risk and factories announced suspension in Cambodia because of a lack of raw materials caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

Officials have estimated that up to 30,000 Cambodian garment workers may face job losses if the supply situation doesn’t improve rapidly this month.
