A number of representatives from unions, employers associations and the Council of Ministers attended the meeting.

Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers’ Democratic Union president Ath Thorn on Sunday said the case of Veng Sreng Boulevard protests in 2014 – which resulted in four deaths – and the assassination of prominent union leader Chea Vichea in 2004 were discussed in the meeting.
