Immigration is not a problem for any particular country but the whole world, if in and out movement is considered. Actually, it’s very problematic for governmental policy around the world including developed countries such as US and Japan. People immigrate for a better opportunity of life; similarly, in US, one common phrase is known as “American Dream”. Meanwhile, with a tragic history for the last few decades, Cambodia is also among unfortunate nations to experience this, but a proper strategy is rarely carried out until the crisis is happened for a while. Anyway, basic rule of life, nowhere is better than home because at least, we starve to death with a basic funeral preparation. More or less, as a human being, our own life is less valuable than our family members, if we are born with proper organisms. Basically, a decision to immigrate is an ultimate decision for conservative nation like Cambodia. By the way, I write this article with a wish to share an idea for a better us and a case of Cambodia would be discussed.
In fact, the major motivation of immigration is generally referred to financial problem and national security, while other factors such as health care and professional development come later for most developing nations. Specifically, a case of Cambodia, original point should be with people’ concept, as they normally consider foreign is better than local regardless of anything. This is a disaster concept leading to make a blind immigration, sometimes. So, what will be the best strategy to reduce a dangerous immigration? How to tackle an unemployment rate of a nation? Honestly, it’s a very difficult question, but a proper strategy might reduce the today problem and prepare for a better next generation.
First of all, natural resource is already not belong to the nation, while benefits are unequally shared among individuals. Furthermore, though technical training and small business have been encouraged by both public and private institutions, still quite problematic. Maybe, due to an unclear vision or a corruption, but it’s unnecessary to criticize in this short article. More importantly, training individual as realistic worker, and guide them to be an individual entrepreneur such as construction trainer, electronic maintenance (radio, TV, phone, etc) trainer, etc. Though not earning much, at least they don’t share any rate of unemployment. Can it solve all the problems of local unemployment? Absolutely not, as skillful workers are quite limited number or even less than 10 percent, I guess. So, what should we do with the left people? 2 points, encouraging new type of laboring projects such as tunnel, and railroad (Not encouraging something unnecessary, but usable project), as traditional ones cannot support anymore. Meanwhile, this new type of project would highly produce any new kind of business pattern. Unfortunately, we still need to emigrate people, but more professional ones for working abroad with proper contract. In fact, we can learn this procedure from Cambodian labor in Korea.
Secondly, to avoid any similar problem happened again, a proper training for individual young generation should be given such as professional training, concept of evolution, and discrimination of improper immigration. Honestly, it’s fairly challenging to talk about educational training, while Cambodia still has very limited access to education. However, physical education don’t need so much sophisticate strategy, as knowledge can be gained with an informally mutual interest (This required a virtual sample to make motivation). Encouraging more programs for practical result must be further hardship, but at least we are preparing a platform for a better us with a less trouble in the future.
Presently, it would be really difficult to put into practice, but stepping stone is needed for a further minor result or nothing can be done with similar nervous status again. A nation without a clear vision of human resource management will be sooner or later collapsed. Without doubt, even the most powerful man in the country is also pale (Not face), and still barely save their own family too. Honestly, I find it so hard to say, when people mentioned that your people works as beggars, lowest-level workers in xxx country. However, I would humbly reply that an efficient plan of countering with human traffic and working condition in my country is still improperly conducted yet. Anyway, a nation of pride is not to produce our own people as a new type of slave, but, at least an official worker (I mean the minimum standard.).
Thank you so much for your reading and I am looking forward to hearing your valuable feedback on my limited knowledge about immigration around the world; specifically, Cambodia.
