Joint statement: Allowing self-employed foreigners is taking the occupation of the Cambodian citizens and workers

On 7 October 2019, the union, association, and civil society organizations issued a joint statement to show their disappointment over the Notification No. 035 of Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training, dated October 5, 2019, on “reauthorization of self-employed foreigners”. The allowance of self-employed foreigners in the service sector is not attracting foreign investment but rather than causing negative consequences to local livelihoods.
