CAMBODIA: China backs job-matcing scheme
A new project to expand job services and widen the availability of information about the job market in Cambodia has been launched by the International Labour Organization (ILO) with funding from the Chinese government.
The 3-year initiative aims to make it easier for people to find jobs, reduce unemployment, and boost the flow of information between jobseekers and employers.
It will also encourage the development of relevant work programmes for specific groups such as women, migrant workers and people with disabilities. Similar initiatives are planned in Lao as well.
The 'ILO/China South-South Cooperation Project to Expand Employment Services and Enhance Labour Market Information in Cambodia and Lao People's Democratic Republic' is the first ILO project supported by the People' Republic of China in Cambodia that focuses specifically on improving job services.
