The Labour Ministry in conjunction with the Pakistani and Bangladeshi Labour Ministries will hold a two-day workshop to exchange information and experience, and train to improve labour inspection systems.

Mam Vannak, a Labour Ministry secretary of state, yesterday said Cambodian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi officials will share their experiences carrying out inspections in their respective countries in order to boost abilities and professionalism among participants.

“They will share their experiences and reinforce abilities in order to make inspectors more professional,” Mr Vannak said.

He said the workshop is an important forum for participants from the three nations to engage in debate in order to meet labour challenges.

Mr Vannak noted that the workshop will also cover healthcare, social security, employment conditions and work safety.

In 2016, the Cambodian government cooperated with GIZ’s Social and Labour Standards in the Textile and Garment Sector in Asia project.

The project aims to promote code of ethics for labour inspectors, provide training on labour dispute resolution and apply a standardised code of conduct for labour inspectors in Cambodia.
