Free rides for Evergreen Industrial Co. Ltd workers during Khmer New Year 2010

April 13th, 2011

Phnom Penh, Cambodia – Evergreen Industrial Co. Ltd., a major textile company based in Cambodia with a large production facility located on the grounds of Cambodia's leading Special Economic Zone, Phnom Penh SEZ, has offered it's workers a special Khmer New Year surprise: a free ride to their home province - and back.

The long and usually expensive trip was arranged by Evergreen Industrial Co. Ltd. as a reward to the workers, who would otherwise spend a large part of their salary for the visit of their families. 7 buses brought hundreds of workers to 7 provinces, allowing them to see their loved ones and to save the money they usually would spend on the trip - a welcome addition to their New Year's celebration at home.

Once the festivities are over, the buses bring the workers back to Phnom Penh - a safe and reliable way to come back to the capital and to commence the workweek again.

"We are glad to offer our workers, who are always loyal and committed to their work here at Evergreen Industrial Co. Ltd a special gift for the New Year", says a manager of the company. Evergreen Industrial Co. Ltd. employs thousands of young Cambodians at their Phnom Penh SEZ site.
