[…] I would like to issue an order and appeal to our compatriots on the following points: Firstly, I seek understanding from you people either relating to their businesses or their accommodations on this fact that we are requiring the closures of buildings, of clubs and of some areas […] Secondly, samples taken from those living in the area for tests. After the test, they must live in quarantine for 14 days to wait for the second test […]. Thirdly, find out those involved with the N8 club and those related to persons involved with the N8 […]. Fourthly, we must quarantine everyone found related […]. Fifthly, I would like to appeal to all stakeholders who are involved with the N8 club and those who have been in contacts with infected ones in the past 14 days to present themselves and bring samples for examination […]. Sixthly, appeal to the general population in Phnom Penh and other areas to increase vigilance and tighten the implementation of three measures to do for protection and three things not to do …
[…] The authorities are responsible for the entry and exit of these people in quarantines. Please do not let (cases) like what happened a few days ago, when four women got out of the hotel and came to relax outside and then came back, repeat again […] This happened because the hotel security helped evacuate the four women. We now have issued a sub-decree related to fines (on those who escape quarantine and those who assist such escapes) in addition to the sub-decree on general quarantines, which we have amended in relation to penalties […]
[…] I still insist that the people of Phnom Penh be careful and please do not leave home if it is not necessary […] I do not prohibit weddings, gatherings on condition of wearing masks and keeping safety distance of 1.5 meters. In this way, we can keep our plans going while preventing infections. I have not yet called for or ordered the closure of schools, both public and private, since the assessment of the would-be impacts of the outbreak suggested that perhaps we had them under control in certain areas […] Even for next week, I haven’t canceled my programs - one at the Ministry of Interior and another to inaugurate a hotel […]
[…] I would also like to take this opportunity to call on our people not to discriminate against the people of Phnom Penh […] This time, because it happened to the Chinese, let us not discriminate against the Chinese like in the early 2020s, when there was discrimination in some countries against the Chinese […] The infections happened to every nation […]
[…] Authorities everywhere continue to perform their duties countering the spread from Thailand and Vietnam […] it is now forbidden to enter Thailand. I have confirmed it, whether it is legal or not […] on the Thai side, they are controlling the border to prevent anyone from entering Thailand. As for those who return, we have to put them in quarantines. Those who want to cross the border from Cambodia to Thailand, from Cambodia to Vietnam, from Cambodia to Laos, we do not allow […] Samdech Techo Hun Sen,

Special Message Regarding the February-20 Event of
COVID-19 Community Outbreak, 20 February 2021.
[…] We now see clearly that it is difficult to get vaccines for poor countries, even those with money cannot ensure its purchase. This is our concern. This is an assertion as to why we have reduced (inoculation percentage) from 13 million to 10 million. This is an arrangement by the Covid-19 Vaccines Commission, which is in regular consultation with the World Health Organization, who has instructed the number of injections to 80% population to achieve herd immunity [...]
[…] I was about to say it, but (since) you asked about the issue of vaccination to journalists (let me) ask the Ministry of Health to consider this group of reporters (journalists) as vaccinated target because they search everywhere and not everyone knows what the risks are. I urge all journalists under the age of 59 to ... register online and look at the 14 conditions for getting vaccination […]
[…] (Although) I cannot get the jab I agree to mobilize children of leaders and as I have three sons, two sons-in-law, if they are qualified for the jabs, let them have it. Some of our young ministers … under the age of 59, such as Hang Chuon Naron, Say Sam Al, Keut Rith, etc., (can have the jabs). Please reorganize and let Samdech Picheay Sena select some military leaders to get the jabs together at Calmette Hospital where we have prepared and broadcast live to show our responsibility [...]
[…] Our concern is the well-being of the 16 million Cambodians in the country. We must maintain peace, political stability, socio-economic development and poverty reduction. (They are just a) small number of unhappy people. Leave them be. In this world, there are happy and unhappy people. The key question is there are more people happy than are unhappy. In Cambodia, there are very few people in prison or have fled the country. That they are in grief, let them be because they created the matter […]
Samdech Techo Hun Sen,
Press Briefing and Conference at the Handover
of SARS-Cov-2 Vaccine (Sinopharm), 07 February 2020.
… On behalf of the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia, I would like to announce my support to the slogan proposed by Senior Minister Cham Prasidh: "Clean water for all." This orientation makes us all think very carefully about the activities to provide clean water for all … in November 1987, I announced and issued the four priorities for investment - water, roads, electricity and human resource ... I believe that these four priorities will be in place for at least another 50 years …
Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority - Profitable and Successful
… I appreciate the efforts of Phnom Penh Water Supply Authority, which is the only company that is profitable and successful. The loan that we borrowed from France, borrowed from Europe, (lenders) do not worry that the Water Supply Authority lacks money to repay. Once it borrows, it will repay both principal and interest. We have not yet asked any country for a delay of payment even in the Covid-19 crisis. We repay both the principal and interest. We pay on time …
Cambodia Does Not Comment on the Internal Affairs of Any Country
… In Rangoon, things has begun. The president and state adviser detained by soldiers. Cambodia does not comment on the internal affairs of any country within ASEAN or any other country. As of now, His Excellency Prak Sokhon said that the Internet access gradually disconnected and reduced. (This is what has happened) about the current situation in Myanmar. That is the affairs of friends within the framework of ASEAN …
Water Imbalance in Phnom Penh Solved in Early 2022
… Thus, about 40,000 households, or 12% of the population, are experiencing problems with clean water shortages, such as low water pressure, access to water only at night, or waiting to receive clean water from the state. This problem occurred during the dry season of 2020 and 2021, and possibly early 2022. It will be resolved in the first phase, which completes the construction of 2022. If the company can speed up the construction, it will be able to solve the (need of) 150,000 families (who still lack water)...
“Look in All Directions” - Cambodia's Foreign Policy
… I would also like to appeal to the European Union, if possible, to assist Cambodia. I would like to thank the French Ambassador (and please) tell President Emmanuel Macron that Cambodia also needs generous (Covid-19 vaccine) assistance from France. Please do not see that Cambodia only needs China … Cambodia looks at all angles. That means looking around, not just looking in one direction. India has a policy of looking east, and then Prime Minister Narendra Modi used the term action to the east. South Korean President Moon Jae-in uses the term action to the south. For me, look in every direction, not in one direction. This is our foreign policy …
7 to 7.5 Thousand Barrels/Day – Does Not Affect the Economy Yet
… In estimation, we will receive between 7,000 to 7,500 barrels per day, which is very small. It has not yet affected the economy. Nevertheless, it was a good start for the oil and gas industry in Cambodia. We will continue with other investment groups, including the French company TOTAL …
2020 Growth Negative 3.1%; 2021 Growth Expected to Go Back to 4%
… Earlier estimate for 2020 is that economic growth would fall within minus 1.9%, but our final estimate now is minus 3.1%. This decline is not limited to Cambodia. The only positive economies in our region are those of Vietnam and China, and the rest of the region is equally negative, just more or less. Cambodia initially estimated negative 6%, but we strive to remain at minus 3.1%. We expect the return to 4% growth in 2021 …
No Emergency Placement in Cambodia
… I am thinking that the Covid-19 is not over in 2021 as there are so many deaths a day ... Holland, which is a member of the European Union, has had the highest death number. People demonstrated and set fire to shops… for our people, I declare once again that I do not place the country in a state of emergency (either) in the whole country or in parts. There is a law, but I do not use it. I guarantee in front of the people, I do not apply the law to the country in times of emergency, in whole or in part of the country. What I am asking from the people is the respect and participation, which is a good deed that does not need to apply the law for the country in an emergency ..
No Plans to Suspend the New Year Holidays
… This year, I have no plans to cancel the Khmer New Year like last year (which we suspended due to) in uncertain circumstances. Last year, the reason for suspending the holiday … because there were 120,000 people from Thailand ... We do not know who had or who did not have (Covid-19) among them. People from Phnom Penh would also travel places ... this year we managed to control the situation. Brothers and sisters returning from Thailand will have to stay in quarantines ...

On Thursday, January 7, 2021, it will be the 42th anniversary of the liberation of Cambodia from the notorious, and noxious, Pol Pot regime and the end of the Killing Fields. It is the day Cambodian survivors of that genocidal period describe as their second birthday.
Without then-Mr. Hun Sen seeking of assistance from neighbouring Vietnam to drive Pol Pot from power on that day in 1979, one cannot imagine how many more millions, or perhaps the remains of Cambodians who...Full story
Despite her limited resources, this Southeast Asian nation’s Royal Government and the people share the same strategic boat amid the global spread of Covid-19 since early this year. Cambodia, like other parts of the world, sought different approaches to fight the infectious disease while the government and world bodies joined hands with scientists to produce a Covid-19 vaccine.
Earlier, many had high hopes that once the Covid-19 vaccine is in place things will get back to normal like before the...Full story
