Up to 95 percent of the Cambodian factories are operating as usual during the traditional New Year period in an effort to curb the spread of the COVID-19, according to officials.
Most factory workers have not taken leave for going to their home provinces on the holiday and only 5 percent of the workers are taking emergency leave, said Cambodia’s Labour Ministry spokesman Heng Sour on April 13
The Cambodian government has also called for urgent actions on food security. Minister of Agriculture Veng Sakhon has ordered all agriculture departments to take immediate measures to ensure the country’s food security.
