Nguy Rith, deputy director of the ministry’s labour department, on said the NLI is to be located within the ministry building itself and is tasked with training inspectors investigating labour disputes.

“The institute will focus on training labour inspectors in order to make them experts in solving labour disputes,” Mr Rith said. “There are many skills needed to solve labour disputes such as monitoring health and safety. All skills needed will be taught at this institute.”

He added that NLI will also be open to law enforcement officials at the Labour Ministry, noting that the NLI will also train unions, employers, workers and students who want to learn more about the labour sector.
