Over 130 factories in Cambodia suspend operations

More than 130 garment, footwear and travel goods factories in Cambodia have suspended operations due to a sharp decline in purchase orders caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, a labour ministry’s spokesman said here on Monday (April 27).

Labour Ministry secretary of state and spokesman Heng Sour said most of these products are exported to European countries and the United States, but these countries are currently being hit hard by the outbreak, which leads to a sharp decline in demand.

“As of today (April 27), more than 130 factories have requested to suspend operations, affecting nearly 100,000 workers,” he said at a press conference.
