H.E. HENG Sour stated that the labour legislation needed to be revised to take into account the rise in independent contractors, gig workers, and service providers in the nation. He also expressed a strong desire to collaborate on these issues. H.E. continued, stating that in order to create capacity for recent graduates, apprenticeship programs needed to be strengthened.
The committees discussed a variety of issues, such as digitizing employment contracts, advancing the fight against sexual harassment in the apparel industry, enhancing working conditions for employees in the agricultural sector, and more. We appreciate H.E. HENG Sour's time and look forward to speaking with you again soon.
