According to Mr. Le Thanh Hoang, Head of the Snuol agricultural complex in Kratie province owned by the Thadi Company, since June, more than 500 Vietnamese-Cambodian workers and thousands of Cambodians in surrounding localities have been hired to work for its agricultural projects.
Thadi’s agricultural production has been sustained throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and workers are paid a monthly salary of around 250-350 USD.
The company is building dormitories for the workers. Accordingly, 12 housing complexes have been built for about 19,000 residents in Koun Mom district of Ratanakiri province and five others for 10,000 people in Kratie’s Snoul district. In the coming time, it also plans to build more support facilities for its workers.
According to Vietnamese Ambassador to Cambodia Vu Quang Minh, agricultural projects can help improve the lives of Vietnamese-Cambodians who are subject to a relocation plan of the Cambodian Government.
He added that positive signs in the first batches of Thadi’s agricultural exports will contribute to the development of agriculture, which is currently considered a spearhead economic sector by the Cambodian Government.
Established in August 2018 under a collaborative effort between the Thaco Group and the Hoang Anh Gia Lai Group, Thadi has rolled out projects to build orchards in Kratie and Ratanakiri provinces.
This year, it plans to employ more than 8,000 workers to serve for sustainable agricultural strategy in Cambodia./.
