TASHKENT – The International Labour Organization (ILO) has welcomed the decision by the Cotton Campaign to lift the global boycott of Uzbekistan cotton products amidst hopes that forced labour has been eradicated there.

The ILO also congratulated the Uzbek government, workers and employers’ organisations on their achievements in reforming the counrty's cotton industry which was notorious for both forced and child labour.

The Cotton Campaign collective of NGOs, trade unions, brands and investors ended the global boycott after a report from the Uzbek Forum for Human Rights found no evidence of government-imposed forced labour in the 2021 cotton harvest.
