He appealed to the private sector and property owners to grant preferential treatment to customers and leasers by delaying payment deadlines or offering lower interest rates.

Earlier, Governor of the Cambodian National Bank Chea Chanto asked banks and financial institutions to pay attention to four vulnerable groups including tourism sector (food, accommodation, and service); garment sector (employers and workers); construction (housing and restaurant); and transportation (taxi drivers, tuk tuks, and logistics).
