PHNOM PENH - The minimum wage for garment workers in Cambodia has been set at US$194 per month from the beginning of next year following tripartite talks between employers, unions and the government.

The figure represents a US$2 increase on this year's minimum wage - however factory owners had wanted to reduce the minimum wage to just US$188 per month because of the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unions had asked for at least US$214 per month, while the government had proposed a compromise of US$192 - however Prime Minister Hun Sen agreed to add another US$2 to the monthly pay of workers in the apparel and textiles sector.
