“As Better Factories Cambodia approaches its 20th anniversary, we, along with our constituents, can proudly reflect on how far the industry has come since 2001. Over the years, Cambodia has established itself as an important player in the global garment sector, one where good working and business conditions are becoming increasingly aligned. Despite both recent and ongoing challenges, there is still great potential in this sector, and our priority is to leverage this potential – ensuring a more sustainable, compliant, innovative and safe sector for workers and employers. We look forward to continuing to work with our constituents and industry partners on this journey.” Sara Park – Programme Manager
“The ’Building Bridges’ project is bringing together the public and private sectors in a new way, providing participants with a platform to build trust, raise concerns, look for solutions and discuss the future. It can establish channels to discuss a common approach to improve working conditions.”
“I changed from truck to bus because I am concerned about the impact on workers. The bus is safer as it has space for commuters to sit”, Transportation driver who joined the programme
