According to Kampong Chhnang provincial authorities, about 500 households with 1,471 people living on boats on Tonle Sap, Kampong Chhnang city, will be subject to relocation. Most of them are the poor without stable jobs while fisheries resources are increasingly limited.

In the immediate future, they will be provided with food and clean water in resettlement areas, and support in changing jobs.

Industrial-agricultural plant growing projects by the Vietnam Rubber Group and the Truong Hai Agriculture JSC (THAGRICO) have generated jobs to the Vietnamese-Cambodians in the Tonle Sap area over the past five months.

Since June, THAGRICO hired over 500 Vietnamese-Cambodian workers and thousands of Cambodians in nearby provinces for its agriculture projects.
