The Better Factories Cambodia (BFC) programme has been extended for a further three years as the country prepares to find out this week if it will retain EU trade preferences.
The BFC, which monitors more than 580 exporting factories, will now continue until December 2022, during which time the partners have committed to continue to improve working conditions, competitiveness and productivity in the textile and apparel sector. Coverage has also expanded to include travel goods and bag manufacturers.
The BFC partnership comprises the Ministry of Labour, the Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC), domestic unions, and the International Labour Organization.
