WASHINGTON DC - Efforts to persuade brands and retailers to sever their links with the Xinjiang region of China over the use of forced labour in the cotton industry will struggle because of the lack of sufficient alternative supplies, according to a new report.

The briefing from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) think tank in Washington DC points out that China is the world’s largest producer and exporter of textiles.

"Similar vertical capacity in a single country or region at such a scale does not currently exist," says report author Amy Lehr, director of the Human Rights Initiative (HRI) at the CSIS.
