CAMBODIA. The Khmer Times (04 August 2023) - The Cambodia and Thailand yesterday agreed to further strengthen cooperation in the field of employment and vocational training.

During a meeting at the Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MLVT), Ith Samheng, Minister of Labour and Vocational Training and Cherdkiat Atthakor, Ambassador of Thailand to Cambodia, also discussed strengthening the joint fight against human trafficking based on the framework of cooperation between the two countries.

During the meeting, Samheng commended the cooperation between the two neighbours in all fields, especially the good efforts made in implementing the three Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) on cooperation in labour migration.

The minister noted that the opportunities for Cambodians to work in Thailand have contributed to the economic development of both countries. Cambodian workers also could earn a better income and enhance their job skills.

The minister expressed his gratitude to the Thai side for taking care of the rights and legitimate interests of Cambodian workers and for making it easier for them to stay and work in Thailand. “It is a win-win policy for both parties,” the minister noted.

He added that there is no shortage of jobs providing decent income in Cambodia though. “But if people want to work abroad, the Royal Government of Cambodia provides them such options and helps them to work abroad,” the minister noted.

The two sides also agreed to encourage Cambodian workers to use the cross-border digital banking payment system to send money to families back home.

Regarding vocational training, the minister thanked the Thai side for providing scholarships for Cambodian students to study in Thailand.
