“Phnom Penh: Starting from 2009, there are four additional labor markets for Cambodia, such as Kuwait, Qatar, Hong Kong, and Macao, while the existing labor markets for Cambodia (Malaysia, South Korea, and Thailand) decline because these countries are affected by the global financial crisis.

“The president of the Cambodian Recruitment Agency, Mr. An Bun Hak, said on 30 March 2009 that Kuwait, Qatar, Hong Kong, and Macao are four new labor markets for Cambodia. Before, Cambodia’s external labor markets were Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, and Thailand. But, due to the current global financial crisis, these countries, which have accepted Cambodian workers, are affected.

“The president of the Cambodian Recruitment Agency added that among the four new labor markets, Hong Kong and Macao offer pretty high salaries to workers. Workers can earn between US$500 and US$600 per month, which is pretty high after Korea.

“He continued to say that each country can employ around 3,000 Cambodian workers per year. If adding up the number of workers in the four labor markets, about 12,000 Cambodia workers can be employed per year. Workers will work at factories, enterprises, and workshops and on construction sites.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.17, #4864, 5-6.4.2009
