YANGON - The Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) is urging brands and retailers sourcing from Myanmar to reassess their presence in the country following what is claimed to be the most comprehensive study so far into the human rights implications.

The ETI is still stopping short of advising fashion companies to pull out of Myanmar and says they need to recognise there will be significant impacts on garment workers whatever action they decide to take.

Based on interviews with 3,120 workers from 70 factories in Myanmar, interviews with key cross-sector stakeholders and desk-based research, the report concludes that there is clear evidence of gross human rights abuses in the garment sector since last year's military coup.
