Protecting migrant workers rights and enhancing multi-stakeholder dialogue to prevent human trafficking between Thailand and Cambodia will be front and centre at an international conference in Siem Reap, Cambodia today, April 25.
Organised by Italian humanitarian non-governmental organisation (NGO) Civil Volunteer Group (GVC), the two-day gathering at the Hotel Angkor Miracle will focus on the topic: ‘Cross border cooperation on Labour Migration and Human Trafficking between Cambodia and Thailand: from policies framework to the implementation’.
Thailand remains the primary destination for Cambodian migrant workers. According to figures from Cambodia’s Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training (MoLVT) some 1.2 million Khmer work overseas, about 92 per cent of who are in Thailand.
