Cambodia Expects to See Double Increase of Foreign Arrivals after End of COVID-19

AKP Phnom Penh, March 03, 2020 —

The number of foreign tourists visiting Cambodia is expected to double after the end of the deadly COVID-19, Ministry of Tourism said.

Cambodia’s tourism industry has been hit by the COVID-19 outbreak since late last year and the country has introduced measures and work plan to restore the sector, especially in Siem Reap province, a major tourism destination.

“After COVID-19 ends within the next four or five months, the number of foreign visitors to Cambodia would increase twofold or threefold,” H.E. Tith Chantha, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Tourism, said at a press conference here yesterday.

In the first two months of this year, foreign arrivals in Cambodia dropped by 15 percent.
