Zero duty status subject to labour laws implement

Sep '09
Moeun Tola, chief of the Labour Programme Unit at the Community Legal Education Centre in Cambodia, has called on the US Congress to provide zero duty access to Cambodian exports, subject to that it meets minimum labour standards.

He said, concession should be granted along the lines of Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein's Trade Act of 2009. This is the third such bill to go before the Senate, following the Trade Act of 2005 and the Trade Act of 2007, both of which failed.

He argued for benchmarks to be set in line with international and national labour standards and called on US government to put pressure on Cambodia to fully implement its labour laws and pass its long-awaited anti-corruption law.

The Trade Act 2009 extends zero duty access to 14 least developed countries (LDCs), one of which is Cambodia.
