Mondulkiri officials trained on national employment policy

The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training has sponsored a capacity building training course for members of the Mondulkiri provincial committee on implementation of the National Employment Policy 2015-2025.

It was conducted at the Mondulkiri labour department with 40 trainees from other provincial departments and specialised units in attendance.

Ministry secretary of state Ho Vuthy said at the opening ceremony that some parts of the policy are being actively implemented by ministries and institutions at the national level, but that each department and specialised unit at the capital-provincial level also has an obligation to implement it to increase decent job opportunities, achieve higher work productivity, promote skills development in human resources and strengthen labour market governance across the country.

Vuthy stated that after the training course, the implementation of the policy in Mondulkiri will be more effective and will improve the management of employment in Cambodia in accordance with changes in the structure of all segments of society as they develop based on incremental technological growth and socio-psychological change.

Mondulkiri deputy governor Nhon Seth said the training was very important and provided a better understanding to the provincial committee so that they can prepare an action plan to implement it successfully at the sub-national level and then report on the progress of their performance.

According to the ministry, the National Employment Policy 2015-2025 has been developed in accordance with the specific context and situation of the Kingdom and in line with international labour conventions, including those of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), such as the 1964 convention on employment policy.

The national employment policy has a stated goal to promote dignified work for all citizens and ensure social harmony through the creation of decent and high-paid jobs for all Cambodians.

This policy is in line with the Cambodian Industrial Development Policy 2015-2025, which aims to promote, modify and modernise structures from low-value-added industries to create modern industries based on skills, competitiveness and high productivity.
