(MENAFN) According to Cambodia's Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen, the COVID-19 vaccine has contributed to the country's economic revival and growth since last November.
Speaking during a ceremony to give over 300,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine donated by Spain, Hun Sen said that because of its high immunization rates, Cambodia may be regarded as one of the top nations in COVID-19 management.
"As a result, although new waves of COVID-19 continue to emerge, Cambodia has been able to reopen the country in all areas, maintain normal socio-economic activities, as well as recover and boost strong economic growth since November 2021 until now," he claimed.
"These achievements were due to vaccination, which has helped build strong defenses, cut off infections and, especially, prevent serious illnesses and deaths," Hun Sen said. "As a matter of fact, there has been no death in Cambodia in the last four months since April 2022."
The prime minister urged everyone in Cambodia to continue to abide by all health and safety regulations and to receive the booster shots when their turn came.
According to a government prediction, agriculture and a quick recovery in the textile and non-garment sectors will drive Cambodia's economy to rise by 5.4 percent in 2022, up from 3 percent in 2021.
