Although 2020 has passed, it has left a tragedy due to the spread of Covid-19 virus, which has severely affected the economies of many countries around the world. In addition, Cambodia has also been affected by Covid 19. There may be many questions on this issue, how will the real estate sector change in 2021? Decline or increase?
According to Mr. Virak Virak, CEO of Century21 Fortuna Investment International Real Estate Agency, told Business Cambodia that the real estate sector in Cambodia in 2021 will increase.
And the reason for the increase is because in 2020 there was a global epidemic of Covid-19 virus for almost a full year from February to December until now, some sectors have been particularly affected. That is related to tourism and hospitality, as it affects some sectors as well, such as the real estate sector, which makes some investors withdraw to return to their home countries without being able to continue investing or operating their businesses.
However, by 2021, the situation of Covid-19 has improved a lot, because in other countries can control the situation and, in some countries, can produce more vaccines to prevent that. The prevalence of Covid-19 has been greatly reduced. And in a little while, I think in the next two to three months, cross-border travel will increase, so that the investors will be able to resume their duties, and like other business owners who have left the country. The rebirth of the Covid epidemic will return, so some businesses will gradually resume, investors will start to come and the situation of Covid in the country can be controlled, so that some sectors, especially real estate will start to increase gradually, and in 2021, while the Royal Government has also forecast economic growth in Cambodia.
