3. Hire a remote team in Cambodia

Cambodia has a labor force of over 9 million people and an open market economic system, making it a popular destination for international investment. Following a drop in GDP as a result of the COVID crisis, Cambodia aims to rebound in the next years as demand for Cambodian goods rises.

Textiles and tourism are the key sectors of Cambodia, but agriculture is the primary source of revenue. Catering, commerce, and travel-related services are highly concentrated in the service sectors. The government and GMAC want to train additional textile employees to bridge skill shortages and promote the clothing sector.

4. Cost of living in Cambodia

Cambodia has a lower cost of living than the majority of Asian nations. On average, 800 to 1,000 USD is sufficient for a single individual, which equates to 3,300,000 - 4,100,000 KHR (Cambodian Riel). However, the cost of living is determined by the city of residency, the utilities utilized, and the area's housing rentals.

5. Cost of renting in Cambodia

The rental price in Cambodia is determined by the size of the apartment or villa as well as its location in the city. Monthly rentals in Cambodia are modest in comparison to other Asian and European countries, but the quality of living is excellent. As a result, many young international professionals select Cambodia as their permanent residence.

6. Major industries in Cambodia

The garment and textile industry is a significant part of Cambodia's manufacturing sector, accounting for 80% of the country's exports. The Cambodian Textile Manufacturers Association wants to build a specialist training facility for garment employees. It intends to teach 1,600 employees in the first three years, as well as 240 university students per year.

Cambodia is primarily an agricultural country, with agriculture employing over 80% of the labor force. Cambodia is well-known for producing some of the world's greatest rice types.

Cambodia's rich cultural legacy makes it a popular tourist destination in Asia. According to 2006 statistics, the tourist sector generated 16% of Cambodia's GDP and 13.7% of total employment.

The cattle and fisheries sectors also make substantial contributions to Cambodia's economic development.

Cambodia has an open economic policy that attracts significant international investment, notably in the textile industry. As a result, the clothing sector has virtually little local ownership.

7. Hiring cost in Cambodia

An average Cambodian laborer earns roughly 19,100 KHR or $5 USD per hour. The low wages explain Cambodia's reduced cost of living and attract a huge number of international businesses. Aside from compensation, the cost of training, onboarding, entity formation, and the full selection, interviewing, and hiring process would all contribute to the overall cost of employment.

8. Employment laws Cambodia

1. Employees in Cambodia are supposed to work no more than 8 hours per day and 48 hours per week.

2. Overtime of up to 2 hours is permissible for the employer in emergency situations.

3. Workers are given 24 consecutive hours of rest each week, and if this interferes with the employer's business, rest might be supplied on a rotating basis.

4. Every Cambodian citizen, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, caste, or other factors, is entitled to equal remuneration for equal labor.

5. The monthly minimum wage in Cambodia is set at 192 USD for regular employees in the textile, footwear, and apparel sectors, and 187 USD for probationary workers.

6. Cambodian workers may be employed on a well-documented fixed contract that lasts no more than two years, or under an indefinite contract that can be both oral and written.

10. Economic landscape in Cambodia

Cambodia is the world's fastest expanding economy, with an average growth rate of 7.7% between 1998 and 2019, and it hopes to reach upper-middle-income status by 2030. However, the COVID-19 outbreak led Cambodia's GDP to contract by -3.1%, the lowest in recent memory. As demand for Cambodian exports rises, the government predicts growth of 4.0% in 2021 and 5.5% in 2022.

11. Market size in Cambodia

The predicted 4.0% rise in Cambodia's economy as part of the country's post-COVID recovery bodes well for the country's employment market. According to official data, Cambodia has an employment rate of roughly 81.1% (2016 figures), and there is significant underemployment.

12. Minimum wage in Cambodia

For regular employees, the monthly minimum wage is 730,002.00 KHR. The minimum wage for probationary employees is 709,947.00 KHR.
