4 part capsule series - fibers of pactics
Fibers of Pactics is a 4-part capsule series produced in collaboration with Population in which employees and management at Pactics share their perspectives on manufacturing in Cambodia. The series looks at the rapid rise of manufacturing starting from the 90s, how this evolved over the previous few decades, and future predictions and hopes. It also focuses on the working experiences of various positions and in different environments, from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap.
