YANGON – Workers’ rights organisation the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) has called for Myanmar to be stripped of the preferential trading terms offered under the Everything But Arms (EBA) agreement.   

The European Union has the authority to suspend beneficiaries – the 48 poorest nations in the world – in cases of serious and systematic violations of human rights.  

In February, the military took control of the country and has since killed an estimated 1,100 people while detaining a further 6,600. It’s led fashion firms to halt orders  with suppliers from the nation, which it’s feared could cost the jobs of more than 200,000 garment workers.
