Cambodia Decent Work Country Programme in place stands as a framework for cooperation between the Royal Government and development partners to contribute to achieving Cambodia’s national development goals by 2030.
The highlight was made by H.E. Dr. Ith Samheng, Minister of Labour and Vocational Training when chairing a Tripartite National Workshop on Dec. 8 to review the Country Programme for Cambodia 2019-2023 here in Phnom Penh.
The exercise was aimed to share best practices and discuss key challenges and set priorities in implementing a decent work programme in Cambodia.
The programme, he added, is well aligned with the Rectangular Strategy Phase 4 of the Royal Government, as well as the ministry’s Career Development and Vocational Technical Training Strategic Plan 2019-2023.
He continued that his ministry so far focuses on creating decent job opportunities, promoting better work environment, boosting productivity and efficiency through training, and disseminating information on job markets both within Cambodia and overseas.
The minister acknowledged the indispensable role of development partners especially the International Labour Organisation (ILO) for their contribution to the ministry’s rollout of the priorities.
According to H.E. Dr. Ith Samheng, the Decent Work Country Programme for Cambodia 2019-2023 is the fifth phase of its kind and marks the 50th anniversary of Cambodia’s membership with ILO.
