Sweden is contributing $268,000 to the Arbitration Council Foundation to strengthen the country’s industrial relations and labour market conditions.
The ACF hosted a signing ceremony today for the one-year core support agreement, worth 2.5 million Swedish Krona, which is equivalent to about $268,000.
Samuel Hurtig, embassy head of development cooperation, today said education and the labour market is one of the focus areas for Sweden’s development cooperation with Cambodia, noting that the foundation has significantly contributed to solving the labour disputes with fair and equitable solutions.
“Sweden has supported the ACF to promote social dialogues to contribute to a sound industrial relation environment in Cambodia since 2014,” Mr Hurtig said.
A press release from the Swedish embassy yesterday noted that Sweden gave the ACF more than $1.2 million between 2014 and last year.
