Activists Urge Government to Take Concrete Measures to Keep EBA

The group told VOA Khmer that the Cambodian government needs to restore democracy and human rights in the country in exchange for the EBA trade preference.

A group of labor and rights activists called on the Cambodian government to take significant actions to retain European Union trade preference ‘Everything But Arms’ after the EU’s second fact-finding mission ended last week.

The group told VOA Khmer this week that the Cambodian government needs to prove to the EU with actions, by restoring democracy and human rights in the country in exchange for the EBA trade preference.

Moeun Tola, executive director of the Center for Alliance of Labor and Human Rights (Central), said he believes that EU does not intend to withdraw Cambodia from its trade preference but the community wants an end to repression on political rights and other fundamental rights in Cambodia.
