Working conditions in Cambodia's garment factories slightly improved: group

PHNOM PENH, July 8 (Xinhua) -- The International Labor Organization (ILO) has found a slight improvement in Cambodia's garment factory working conditions, although issues of overtime and occupational safety and health continue, according to its latest report released on Wednesday.

The ILO's Better Factories Cambodia (ILO-BFC) Program report said it saw "a slight improvement in factories' overall compliance with labor law standards."

The findings were based on ILO-BFC factory assessment reports on 393 garment and footwear factories between May 2014 and April 2015, it said.

The garment and footwear sector, the kingdom's largest foreign currency earner, comprises 1,087 factories with some 700,000 workers, according to the labor ministry.

The sector exported products in equivalent to 6.2 billion U.S. dollars last year, accounting for 80.5 percent of the country's total export.

Currently, the monthly minimum wage for a worker stands at 128 U.S. dollars.
