Minister Urges for in-Depth Study on Labour Dispute

Minister of Labour and Vocational Training H.E. Ith Samheng has urged stakeholders to conduct an in-depth study on challenges and labour dispute settlement.

The minister made the point when presiding over the Tripartite Forum on the Future of Labour Dispute Settlement by the Arbitration Council here in Phnom Penh on Dec. 13.

Officials at the arbitration council, and arbitration council foundation, and the representatives from employer's and employee’s organisations and international buyers joined the hybrid online and in-person platform.

H.E. Ith Samheng underlined that the forum is a good opportunity to review work achievements and challenges to foster professional relations in particular the implementation of a joint work dispute solution mechanism by the arbitration council.

The support from all stakeholders is an indispensable factor to upgrade work conditions, ensure professional relations, harmonisation and business-trade sustainability so as to attract more investments to Cambodia.

The forum plays a crucial role in defining a common direction to facilitate all stakeholders for a transparent and effective dispute solution, he added.
