The Ministry of Labour and Vocational Training expected that the ongoing two-day National Career and Productivity Fair will attract around 30,000 participants who could fill out application forms for jobs.

The fair is being held on October 28-29 from 8am-8pm at the Koh Pich Convention and Exhibition Centre. It was organised by the labour ministry, in cooperation with the Union of Youth Federations of Cambodia and the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia.

The ministry said that the event is an opportunity for employers, education providers, job seekers, and investors to meet and share experiences, as well as to apply for jobs.

The ministry said a total 150 counters have been set up for the fairs. Some of the industries on display include banking, microfinance, insurance, retail and wholesale, tourism and hospitality, real estate, construction, telecommunications, information technology.

Pich Sophorn, secretary of state at the ministry, said the fair was only possible thanks to the government’s excellent work in bringing the Covid-19 pandemic under control.
