BATH – The risk of modern slavery in garment and textile manufacturing hubs in Asia has risen dramatically on the back of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to consultants Verisk Maplecroft.

In its 2020 Human Rights Outlook report, the global risk data company warned that workers in countries such as Bangladesh, China, Myanmar, India, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia were at increased risk of slave labour.

Both India and Bangladesh, key manufacturing countries for the apparel sector, had dropped into the ‘extreme risk’ category of the company’s Modern Slavery Index for the first time, joining China and Myanmar in a list of 32 countries.
