Cambodian PM indicates minimum wage growth
The Cambodian garment sector’s monthly minimum wage could reach $250 in the next five years, up from $170 now, Prime Minister Hun Sen indicated recently. A target minimum wage for 2023 has been calculated, he told workers in Por Sen Chey district, refusing to divulge more. Cambodian Alliance of Trade Unions leader Yang Sophorn termed it pre-poll rhetoric.

The minimum wage has been decided in the past four years following tripartite negotiations involving members from the government, unions and employers. In October, the wage was increased from $153 to $170, including a customary $5 bump mandated by Hun Sen himself.

Urging workers to help maintain peace to ensure economic and job stability, the prime minister said the government would reach the $250 figure in an incremental fashion, according to a report in a Cambodian newspaper.

Ken Loo, spokesman for the employer representative Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia, said the wage would be determined through tripartite negotiations. (DS)
