Sweden signed on 27 February 2020 a five-year agreement with the Arbitration Council of Cambodia. The agreement includes a $530.000 grant. The agreement is also in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), who has granted the partnership $1.5 million, reports the Cambodian daily Phnom Penh Post.
A joint press release details the goals of the partnership: to make Cambodia’s labour relations system and labour dispute resolution services more effective. The trio is hoping for the grants to raise awareness about the council and their work; issue resolution between workers and employers.
