Funded by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) through The Asia Foundation, CSIP is implementing a research project on “The Introduction of the Private Sector’s Pension Scheme in Cambodia: Readiness and Its Impact on Social Welfare.” This research aims to better understand the public’s awareness and perception of and reaction to the introduction of a pension scheme in Cambodia. It will also assess the readiness of employers and employees for the implementation of the scheme and will identify the potential challenges/burdens for employers, including the 2% to be paid by employers. Lastly, the research will provide policy options for the government to consider, which could potentially offset the cost increase for implementing the pension scheme.
