ILO seeks explanation for PM Hun Sen's remarks

25
Jan '07
Geneva based International Labor Organization (ILO) has asked Cambodia for clarification of Prime Minister Hun Sen's allegations about ILO misrepresenting the state of local apparel units.

Country's garment sector brings in maximum capital from abroad. Hun Sen had asked ILO to rectify all bogus reports it prepared on the sector.

Due to US and EU imposing restrictions on import of Chinese garments, country's apparel exports have risen to US $2.2 billion per annum in past few years. About 3,20,000 labourers work in 286 Cambodian garment factories.

ILO in turn demanded an explanation from Cambodia for Hun Sen's comments. Geneva headquarters has dispatched a letter in this regard to the Government and is waiting for reply.

ILO is operating a project to supervise working conditions in local apparel units from 2001.
