Cambodia’s Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Germany’s international development organisation, the Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) recently to implement the second phase of a multinational project aimed at improving the sustainability of the country’s textile and garment sector.

Ministry Secretary of State Mom Vannak and GIZ Country Director Günter Riethmacher on Tuesday signed the MoU at GIZ’s headquarters.

Implemented in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Myanmar and Pakistan since 2016, and Vietnam from this year, the project (Promoting Sustainability in the Textile and Garment Industry in Asia-Fabric) costing US $ 6.7 million will be extended in Cambodia until 31 March 2021, now.

The project would enable Cambodia to exchange good experiences with and learn from other countries involved in the project in regard to the successful implementation of sustainable practices in the sector, maintained Nguy Rith, the ministry’s Undersecretary of State, while addressing the press after the signing ceremony.

“We have obtained the achievements to the extent that work inspection groups, orders and manuals are established to solve conflicts for law enforcement participation…,” Rith said.
