Footwear association in Cambodia to operate under garment body

A footwear association has been granted permission by the Cambodian Government to operate under the gamut of the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC).

Representatives of 37 of the 38 footwear factories operating in the Kingdom approved this move of the Government, with one absentee.

Minister of Commerce, Cham Prasidh, while talking with GMAC members and footwear factory owners, admitted that it was not easy for the factories to individually approach the Government to resolve their issues, and having an association could help in finding solutions to the problems faced by the industry.

He further said that as Minister of Commerce he wishes that the footwear factories should have collective bargaining capacity with the Government.

He said the Government would not like the entrepreneurs to exit the industry due to the issues coming in their way. Instead, it would like to develop an interactive platform for dialogue for the footwear units, he stated.

The footwear sector has developed at great pace in Cambodia. Registering a year-on-year rise of 55.82 percent, the industry last year exported footwear items worth around US$ 172 million.

Van Sou Ieng, Chairman of GMAC, welcoming footwear manufacturers as garment association's members, said that the GMAC would be helpful in drawing prospective buyers to the factories. He added that the footwear manufacturers can even enhance their production through cooperation with the association.

Footwear sector is considered a priority area for development of the Cambodian economy, and has a potential to grow by around 80 to 100 percent this year, Mr Ieng said.
