New Cambodia MoU to strengthen EU apparel sourcing

The European Chamber of Commerce in Cambodia and the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia have inked an agreement to strengthen their ties and better support European brands sourcing from the country.

EuroCham Cambodia and GMAC have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will remain in force for an indefinite duration and defines a clear set of joint actions by the two associations for the coming years.

The MoU aims to foster closer cooperation between the two associations and their members and to support European garment companies and fashion brands in Cambodia, in addition to promoting Cambodia’s opportunities on the European stage both in Europe and in ASEAN.

As one of the first actions under the new cooperation, EuroCham will set up a public training programme with the Cambodian Garment Training Institute (CGTI) in Phnom Penh, focused on sustainable textile sourcing, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) and compliance. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) will fund the training initiative.
