Australia Appreciates Cambodia’s COVID-19 Vaccination Effort

Australia has appreciated Cambodia's ongoing development in all sectors, especially the country's noticeable vaccination effort against COVID-19 standing out regionally.

The appreciation was made by H.E. Andreas Zurbrugg, new Deputy Head of Mission of the Embassy of Australia to Cambodia in a recent meeting with Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection H.E. Mrs. Men Sam An.

H.E. Andreas Zurbrugg informed H.E. Mrs. Men Sam An that he had arrived in the Kingdom for three months, and his mission here is to be a collaboration coordinator between Cambodia and Australia, especially when Cambodia is preparing for the hosting of big international events for 2021-2022, like the 13th Asia-Europe Summit (ASEM13) and ASEAN Summits.

From her end, H.E. Mrs. Men Sam An told H.E. Andreas Zurbrugg that the Royal Government of Cambodia is very committed to inoculate COVID-19 vaccines to the targeted groups without any discrimination.

She warmly welcomed H.E. Andreas Zurbrugg for his mission in Cambodia, particularly to further enhance bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Australia has committed the cash assistance of about US$35 million for a project in countries across the region including Cambodia through the Ministry of Health, UNICEF, and WHO.

This project focuses not only on vaccine purchase, but also on technical procurement and medical training for concerned staff to maintain the vaccine quality.
