At 11:05 p.m. on March 27, Flight KR4905, carrying 7.06 tons of medical supplies donated by the Chinese people, took off from Yiwu and headed for Phnom Penh International Airport of Cambodia. Chinese entrepreneurs in Cambodia commissioned merchants in Yiwu to purchase this batch of supplies in Yiwu’s market, which includes protective masks, testing reagents, and protective clothing.

When the management company of the Yiwu Airport was assigned to transport the medical supplies to Cambodia, it communicated with the representative of Cambodia Airlines in China to understand the specific request, and summoned Yiwu Customs, Yiwu Immigration Inspection, the Civil Aviation Bureau, and other departments to meet and confer on the handling of key issues such as immigration control for foreign crews, loading the supplies onto the plane, and clarifying the safety procedures during the pandemic period.

On the rainy afternoon of the same day, members of the management company, Yiwu Customs, Yiwu Immigration Inspection, the Civil Aviation Administration of Yiwu, and other public security units arrived at the airport in advance, waiting to meet the plane. When the flight arrived, the leaders of the security units took the lead and focused on each procedure. Other staff did their part and collaborated, loading the medical supplies to ensure that the materials went through customs and were put on the plane. With the full cooperation of each unit, the management successfully completed the assignment. (By He Xin, translated by Zhang Jiajia, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
