Doubling Down on Tourism Today will Constrain Cambodia’s Policy Options Tomorrow

Anyone following the news out of Cambodia is likely to have encountered two conflicting sentiments regarding the current COVID-19 situation.

On the one hand, in late July, the spokesperson for the Ministry of Health and the chairwoman of the COVID-19 Vaccination Committee proclaimed that the country is at a critical “redline,” an assessment which led to government-mandated lockdowns in Siem Reap starting in the middle of September.

On the other hand, thanks to swift vaccination progress, the country’s tourism leaders are already preparing for a potential re-opening of Siem Reap to vaccinated tourists in the last quarter of 2021, with the government hinting at the possibility of reducing quarantine measures for incoming visitors.
