YANGON - Retailer Primark says that 2,200 garment workers who lost their jobs when two of its suppliers in Myanmar closed without notice should this week receive all unpaid wages and severance payments they are owed.

Primark says it has been working with the suppliers concerned, GTIG Huasheng and Primseng Guo, both located in the Wartayar Industrial Zone in the city of Yangon, to ensure the workers are paid in full.

The retailer announced that it was withdrawing from Myanmar last September after a report from the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) urged brands to reconsider their presence in Myanmar because of the human rights situation following the military coup.
