YANGON – A new phase of the European Union’s SMART Textile and Garments project has kick-started, focusing on environmental sustainability within Myanmar’s apparel manufacturing industry.

With backing from H&M, Bestseller and C&A, organisers of the project will work closely with hundreds of factories in the Southeast Asian nation as it conducts on-site assessments and training for workers to understand workplace communication, health and safety, chemicals, waste management and energy.

“The European Union’s unwavering commitment and support plays an important role in improving decent work conditions and responsible business practices in Myanmar,” said Ministry of Labour, immigration and population permanent secretary U Myo Aung.
