Ministry of Commerce Calls for Continued Cooperation to Eliminate Non Compliance with Labour Standards

H.E. Pan Sorasak, Minister of Commerce, appealed to all concerned parties to continue their cooperation to totally eliminate the non-compliance with labour standards among garment and footwear industries.

H.E. Minister made the appeal while chairing a quarterly meeting on labour compliance of garment and footwear industries at the ministry office in Phnom Penh on Wednesday.

The labour compliance will enhance the fame of Cambodian garment and footwear industries to gain more purchase orders from big international markets, he explained.

H.E. Pan Sorasak also highlighted the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC)’s commitment to protect and improve the well-being and working conditions of factory workers and employees by implementing joint strategy and action plan that aims to strengthen capacity and ownership of the RGC to professionally and independently monitor the issue.

ILO-BFC’s annual report of 2018 drew a positive picture of Cambodia’s compliance with labour standards in the garment and footwear sector, and reported a remarkable drop in child labour in the sector.
