Working conditions improving in Cambodian garment factories, says ILO


A report released last month by Better Factories Cambodia (BFC), a programme of the International Labour Organization (ILO), found that compliance with working conditions regulations in the clothing sector has improved substantially over the past four years.

The study is an assessment of BFC’s transparency programme, a publically available overview of the performance of the garment sector based on 21 critical factors.

The report said the proportion of factories in compliance with all 21 factors increased from 30% at the launch of public reporting in 2014 to 46% at present, while the number of violations decreased from 281 to 197.
