HONG KONG -- Cambodia and Vietnam lead a Southeast Asian region that is on the mend from the pandemic, Nikkei's latest and last COVID-19 Recovery Index shows.

After tying for 100th place when the ranking was first published in July 2021, Cambodia and Vietnam have achieved a dramatic turnaround, ranking in the top 10 for four straight months. Some other members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations have also significantly improved from a year ago, when ASEAN countries occupied the last few spots.
