Cambodia lost $5 billion in tourism revenue in 2020 because of Covid-19, Ministry of Tourism secretary of state Tith Chantha said.
At a press conference on Thursday, Chantha said: “Our tourism sector earns about $6 billion a year from domestic and international travel. But we have lost international tourists and we can lose national tourists too. We studied the impact and we have lost $5 billion from our annual revenue.
He said a resurgence in domestic tourism is helping and Cambodia could regain between $500,000 and $1 million from now until the end of the year.
