The European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham) in Cambodia recently called for quicker adoption of renewable energy and rooftop solar panels by garment firms to raise their competitiveness. EuroCham representatives conveyed this to industry heads, development partners and government officials at a meeting co-hosted by the Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC).
There are more than 6,000 garment exporters in Cambodia now that directly employ over 700,000 workers.
“Rooftop solar can attract new, modern suppliers and raise production. This is all about being competitive, and my job is to make Cambodia more competitive as a production hub for different products,” a representative of the chamber’s garment and manufacturing committee was quoted as saying by a Cambodian newspaper.
