WASHINGTON DC - Uzbekistan cotton has been taken off the Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) list of goods believed to be made with forced or child labour - but garments and textiles from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Ghana have been added.

Earlier this year, the Cotton Campaign collective of NGOs, trade unions, apparel brands and investors ended its call for a global boycott of Uzbek cotton after a report found no evidence of government-imposed forced labour in the cotton harvest for the first time in 11 years.

However, the 10th edition of the ILAB list of foreign-made goods made using forced or child labour names a total of 158 goods from 77 countries, an increase of 32 new products.
