Fair Wear urges the Cambodian government to address four key issues

[24 January, 2020] Fair Wear ,together with garment brands, civil society organisations and trade unions wrote a letter to the government of Cambodia to address our concerns regarding the labour situation in the country.

The signatories of this letter are concerned that the labour and human rights situation in Cambodia is risking the loss of trade preferences for Cambodia. The European Union is reviewing Cambodia’s Everything but Arms (EBA) benefits. Members in the U.S. Congress have introduced bills that would require the U.S. Government to review Cambodia’s Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) benefits.

In our letter the signatories ask the government of Cambodia to publicly present a roadmap that sets out concrete and time-bound steps to bring Cambodia in line with international standards on these major issues.
