Breaking News: EU Noted Steps Reported by Cambodia Towards Improving Compliance with International Standards on Freedom of Association

(Brussels): European Commission and the European External Action Service yesterday noted steps reported by Cambodia towards improving compliance with international standards on freedom of association and collective bargaining, as well as in addressing a number of land disputes in relation to economic land concessions.

The note of Cambodia’s improvement was made in the statement released on June 11, 2019 in Brussels after officials from the European Commission and the European External Action Service undertook a mission to Cambodia from 3 to 10 June 2019.

The statement states the mission was part of the monitoring and evaluation under the procedure that could lead to the temporary withdrawal of Cambodia’s trade preferences under the EU’s Everything But Arms (EBA) trade scheme, following concerns over Cambodia’s record against core human rights and labour rights conventions.
