Cambodian women, who lost their jobs when the factories they worked in shut down, sits in front of a factory looking for work in Phnom Penh March 18, 2005. Cambodia's clothes-making industry grew from nothing in the mid-1990s to account for over $1.1 billion of exports in 2004. But with the expiry of a global quota system called the Multi-Fibre Agreement, Cambodia and other economic minnows have been exposed to the full force of cut-throat competition, from China in particular. The United Nations estimated in January that 20 of the 200 factories around Phnom Penh had closed and aid officials fear many redundant workers will be pushed towards prostitution or become victims of human trafficking.
