The government has drawn up a “Draft Law on Social Protection System” to ensure minimum standards of well-being and reduce economic and financial vulnerabilities.
The draft law is designed to strengthen the income security of the people and promote social equality through the creation and management of social protection initiatives that promote inclusive, scalable and sustainable financial systems.
Ros Seilava, chairman of the National Council for Social Protection’s Executive Committee, on July 1 led a seminar on the document via video link.
Seilava, who is also a secretary of state at the Ministry of Economy and Finance, told the seminar that the government recognises that development of social protection systems plays a very important role in ensuring the financial well-being of the people of Cambodia.
And the National Social Protection Policy Framework 2016-2025 is vital to increasing access to services, the coverage of national assistance programmes, and social security for public and private sector officials, he said.
