Productivity falling in Cambodian garment sector: GMAC
31
May '16
Productivity in the apparel and footwear sector in Cambodia decreased by 14 per cent between 2011 and 2014, the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) said citing data from the International Labour Organization.
 
Although there is no available data post-2014, the decline in productivity seems to have continued till 2016 as the industry has not witnessed any improvements or significant changes in the intervening period, GMAC secretary-general Ken Loo said in a recent statement.
 
GMAC is in talks with the ministry of labour and vocational training to take steps to improve labour productivity in the country's garment sector, which employs around 700,000 people, the statement said.
 
“Everyone has to do their part in order to keep our industry as healthy as it can be in the current global competitive environment,” Loo said in the statement.
 
Cambodia's garment industry continues to battle with rising costs of electricity and transportation, according to the GMAC. (RKS)
