GMAC makes EU plea to consider job losses

In a statement set to be published on Monday, the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) said the EU’s possible withdrawal of Cambodia’s Everything But Arms (EBA) access would harm 750,000 workers and three million families.

The GMAC statement, seen by The Post on Sunday, came as European Commission legislators were set on Monday to end six months of monitoring and engagement stipulated under the EBA withdrawal procedure, first enacted by the EU in February.

The EU is set to present a report to Cambodia providing its conclusions after a further three-month period, after which a final decision on Cambodia’s EBA status would be made.
