Spokesman disputes his ministry’s report that shows migration dropping 80 percent

The number of Cambodian workers migrating abroad declined by 80 percent last year, the Labor Ministry’s annual report says — though spokesman Heng Sour rejected the comparison that was made in his ministry’s report.

According to the report, released last month, Cambodian workers who migrated abroad dropped from 342,154 in 2018 to 68,040 last year, with a printed table noting an 80.1 percent decrease.

Most workers left for Thailand, at 57,823 migrants, followed by 5,938 to South Korea and 3,945 to Japan, the report says.
