Delegates from 5 Provinces visited Phnom Penh SEZ for a factory tour
Phnom Penh, 2nd March 2017 - Cambodia’s leading economic zone welcomed a government official delegation from 5 major provinces in the Kingdom to present infrastructure, manufacturing operations and recruitment conditions on the site during a day visit.
Following the success of the previous events regularly organized at the zone, the industrial estate hosted this week the 10th edition of its traditional guided tour. A journey co-organized jointly by the Cambodia Taiwan Education and Employment Program (CTEP) and the National Employment Agency (NEA) with the support of Phnom Penh SEZ.
On this occasion, 62 Deputy, Provincial Governors and District Governors, from Siem Reap (13), Battambang (15), Kampong Thom (9), Kampong Cham (11) and Prey Veng (14) provinces gathered at the Special Economic Zone.
The purpose of the event is to familiarize government officials with the factory job and its working conditions and, thereby, help to promote domestic employment for villagers from the countryside and returned emigrant workers from Thailand.
Also, this kind of initiative is made to help foreign companies in Cambodia to recruit workers from more diverse sources, and implement Corporate Social Responsibility by hiring people from poor rural areas.
After a presentation on the investment and recruitment conditions and procedures by Phnom Penh SEZ top management, honorable guests were invited to visit five factories: Japanese automotive components manufacturer Denso, Japanese manufacturer Minebea, American luxury goods retailer Laurelton Diamonds, Japanese hairpiece and wiglets manufacturer Artnature and first Cambodian dairy company Angkor Dairy Products.
Delegates were amazed by the facilities and infrastructures, as well as the working conditions offered by the industrial estate to their workers. After this visit, government officials have promise that they will plan to work closely with local authorities from their respective province to promote job opportunities, advantageous working conditions and benefits to work at Phnom Penh Special Economic Zone.
