Company Response

Daewoo International response

[Daewoo International's response to petition calling on US customs agency to stop imports from company due to use of cotton harvested with forced labour in Uzbekistan]. Daewoo International Corporation (“Daewoo”) is and has always been strongly opposed to any forced labor and agrees that it is an issue that must be resolved as soon as possible. As one of the companies involved in the local textile business of Uzbekistan, Daewoo understands that it cannot be free from the issue of alleged forced labor in Uzbekistan and will continue to resolve this issue until it is eradicated...Daewoo has been making its best efforts in resolving this issue by, for example, asking the Uzbekistan government to make improvements in this regard through consistent and repeated communications on issues relating to human rights including forced labor...Uzbekistan government shares our concerns regarding the forced labor issue and has confirmed to us its commitment to make improvements on this issue. [Refers to Uzmarkazimpex, Uzprommashimpex and Uzinterimpex]
