Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on “Better Factories Cambodia Programme for 2023-2027


In the afternoon of 10 October 2022 at Phnom Penh Hotel, Mr. Kong Sang, Chairman of GMAC, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on “Better Factories Cambodia Programme for 2023-2027”. This MOU was signed between the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia, the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) and the International Labour Organization (ILO). 

Be reminded that it has been more than 20 years that we accept this special programme of the ILO with a clear vision that continuous improvement of working conditions is one of the most important cornerstones on which the industry can build its success on.

Cambodia is proud to be the first country in the world to embrace this ILO’s unique programme to independently monitor our factories and transparently report on their findings. 

Mr. Kong Sang pointed out that the success was clear with the programme being replicated for implementation in about 10 other countries. He emphasized that “our commitment to the program is as strong as it was more than 20 years ago and we therefore are very happy today to renew our Memorandum of Understanding to continue to the programme for another 5 years.”
