PHNOM PENH — Cambodia has raised its minimum wage for textile workers by 4.4 per cent amidst pressure from the European Union over its record on human rights.

The increase, which comes into effect in January, increases the legal minimum salary paid to workers in the textiles and footwear industry to US$190 a month.

The garment industry, Cambodia's largest employer which generates US$7 billion for the economy each year, has been facing uncertainty after the EU began a process in February that could suspend the country’s special trade preferences.
