Hun Sen Asks China to Air Freight Raw Materials for Cambodia’s Garment Production

Prime Minister Hun Sen asked Chinese producers on Wednesday to air freight critical raw materials, as garment manufacturers in Cambodia prepare to face raw material shortages on account of the coronavirus outbreak.

Hun Sen, who was speaking in Poipet at a road inauguration, said it would be costlier to use air freight but that if it prevented work suspensions at factories, it would benefit workers.

“We will spend more on transportation but we can have jobs and income for workers and fulfill production for factories to maintain profits and avoid closure,” he said, addressing Chinese Ambassador Wang Wentian, who also attended the event.
