WASHINGTON DC - The US and Japan have announced the formation of a task force aimed at protecting human rights in supply chains amid concerns about China's treatment of Uyghur Muslims in the Xinjiang region which produces a fifth of the world's cotton.

US Trade Representative Katherine Tai and Japan's Minister for Economy, Trade, and Industry, Nishimura Yasutoshi, signed a memorandum of cooperation to launch the Task Force on the Promotion of Human Rights and International Labor Standards in Supply Chains.

They also invited other governments to join them and hosted a roundtable with Japanese business representatives on preventing the use of forced labour in supply chains.
