YANGON - A quarter of a million garment workers in Myanmar have lost their jobs following the military coup in February, according to a new study by the International Labour Organization (ILO).

The ILO says the coup, on top of the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, has caused a deep employment crisis in Myanmar with the equivalent of 2.2 million jobs lost so far this year.

The apparel industry, where three out of ten jobs have been lost, along with the country's other key sectors - construction and tourism - have been among the hardest hit, according to the study.
