China lauded by PM for its help with vaccinations


Prime Minister Hun Sen today praised the Chinese government and the Chinese people for their active participation and leading role in the fight against Covid-19 in the global framework for the production and distribution of vaccines, medical equipment and sharing of experience in preventing, caring for and treating Covid-19 patients.

Speaking at the Opening Ceremony of the 18th China-ASEAN Expo 2021 on “Sharing Opportunities Gained from New Corridor, Road and Sea to Build a China-ASEAN Community for a Common Future” Prime Minister  Hun Sen said “Although Cambodia is considered a country with limited resources,  we are committed to turning the Covid-19 crisis into an opportunity for deepening reforms to build an economic system, and a society that is stronger and more resilient to future crises.”

He said that for more than a year now, the Royal Government has been actively fighting against Covid-19 through the implementation of three main strategies: prevention, treatment, and vaccination, and on the other hand, implement policies to maintain the balance of people’s lives and business in all sectors.

In addition, in order to accelerate the re-launch of socio-economic activities and to combat the Covid-19 virus, the Royal Government of Cambodia on August 1, 2021, decided to launch a vaccination campaign for children and adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18 and also the third dose of the vaccination campaign to frontline public service officials, he said.

He stated that the achievement of these strategies is due to the fact that Cambodia has purchased many vaccines, as well as a lot of aid from the Chinese government to give to the people in Cambodia.

He went on to say that because of its efforts, Cambodia has become one of the countries in the region and in the world that has achieved a remarkably high level of vaccinations.

He added that as of the end of August 2021, 86% of adults over 18 have been vaccinated with two doses, and 81% of adolescents (12-18) have had their first dose.
