Cambodian garment units need to modernise: GMAC

Aug '16
Stakeholders in the Cambodian apparel and footwear sector will need to produce higher valued added products, due to rising costs, mainly driven by wage increases in the industry. This development will mean the industry buying modern machinery and equipment, which will help them meet head on, fierce competition from other countries.

“In face of fierce worldwide competition, rising worker wages are reducing margins in producing low-value clothing garments,” Ly Tek Heng, operation manager at the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) said.

“If we keep on producing low value garment products, while cost of labour keeps on increasing, it will not be possible to compete. So, companies in the industry will need to invest in more modern machinery and machinery, which will allow them to make higher priced products,” Heng was quoted as saying by Cambodian media.

Ly Tek Heng was addressing a press conference to inform about the sixth Cambodia International Machinery Industry Fair (CIMIF) and Cambodia International Textile and Garment Industry Exhibition (CTG), both of which are scheduled to begin on August 26. (AR)
