Disregard rumors: Cambodian Minister tells garment workers
08
Aug '13
The Ministry of Social Affairs of Cambodia has requested the 600,000 garment workers in the country to disregard the rumors of war and continue with work as usual.
 
The rumors of war have been increasing, since a recent national election in the country that has seen disputed results and threats of instability.
 
Social Affairs Minister Ith Sam Heng said in a statement that there have been rumors about chaos and plans for demonstrations leading to war causing all garment factory workers, manufacturers, unions and the public to be fearful, reports The Cambodia Daily.
 
All employees, unions and employers, should disregard these rumors and continue with the production and the business should go on as normal, he added.
 
The Minister assured in the statement that the Government of Cambodia would also consider increasing the garment factory workers’ wages in 2014.
 
Earlier in June, Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen made an appeal to the country’s garment workers to avoid resorting to strikes or else business orders may shift to other countries.
 
From January to March 2013, Cambodia exported US$ 1.34 billion worth of garments, showing a rise of 17.5 percent year-on-year. 
 
In 2012, Cambodia exported apparels worth US$ 4.61 billion, registering a growth of nine percent compared to exports of US$ 4.24 billion made in 2011.
 
The garment sector is the main foreign exchange earner for Cambodia, accounting for about 80 percent of the country’s overall exports.
