Cambodia’s Future Jobs : Linking to the Economy of Tomorrow (English)

There are 8 million jobs in Cambodia. 80 percent of Cambodian adults are working, compared to 62.5 percent in the rest of East Asia. Cambodia’s workforce is expected to grow by 135,000 workers per year for the next 35 years. Women have access to better jobs in sectors where they dominate. In the manufacturing sector, where a majority of workers are women, 65 percent of professional or managerial jobs are held by women. In contrast, they hold only 5 percent of the professional jobs in the male-dominated construction industry. On average, female wage workers in Cambodia earn 86 cents for every dollar earned by male workers, and 89.4 cents for every dollar earned by male workers with the same education as them.
