AKP Phnom Penh, September 17, 2018 —

Annual wage increment of factory workers does not affect the buyers, Mr. Heng Suor, Deputy Head of Labour Advisory Committee’s Secretariat was quoted as saying during a recent meeting to facilitate adjustment for next year’s salary package for the workers.

The Royal Government of Cambodia has a practical policy that entails comprehensive consideration of all factors, he highlighted.

At the same time, he added, the government is introducing favourable investment conditions to encourage investments.

Currently, the monthly minimum wage for factory workers is US$170, up from US$153 in 2017 and from US$140 in 2016.
