Brands praised for transparency in Myanmar

Written by John Mowbray

WAKEFIELD - Gap, adidas and H&M have been praised for their transparency in publicly announcing they are sourcing from Myanmar – and other brands which are already sourcing from the country are being encouraged to follow their progressive approach. "I encourage brands and retailers to keep coming and to transparently explain to the media that they want to buy garment products from Myanmar because they support fair and safe working conditions," said Jacob Clare from the EU-funded Smart Myanmar programme, which helped Myanmar Garment Manufacturers Association (MGMA) publish the country's first ever Code of Conduct which sets out responsible business practices for Myanmar's growing apparel industry. Ecotextile News understands around a dozen major apparel brands are now sourcing from Myanmar.
