45,000 tourist sector workers out of jobs as COVID-19 wreaks havoc on Cambodia’s tourism industry

Recommended Posts

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on Cambodia’s tourism industry, with nearly 3,000 tourism and tourism-related businesses closing and more than 45,000 workers losing jobs as of May.

 

Cambodia is one of the Southeast Asian countries that strictly enforce restrictions on foreign arrivals to prevent the spread of the disease. However, this has led to increased unemployment and debt burden, seriously affecting socio-economic development. Cambodia’s Ministry of Tourism forecast that the local tourism industry will lose 3 billion USD this year.

 

According to Cambodia’s regulations, all foreigners entering Cambodia must have a 3,000 USD deposit on arrival, medical insurance of at least 50,000 USD, and a health certificate declaring they are free of COVID-19. President of the Cambodia Association of Travel Agents Chhay Sivlin has expressed her concern regarding the entry requirements and called on the government to ease the travel restrictions.

They have a temple and a few fruit stalls.  Damn the damage must be horrendous.  How will they recover and will anyone notice.

CCP has already bought Cambodia.  Next up: Hong Kong, Taiwan, Laos, Myanmar, and yes, Thailand.

Can’t trust their numbers-Likely people dying at home-most people don’t have money for the hospital-they can’t go
