Primark resumes placing orders in Myanmar
19 May 2021
Fashion retailer Primark has joined H&M and Bestseller by resuming sourcing in Myanmar after putting a halt on the placing of new orders following the military coup.
A Primark spokesperson said: "We took the decision to pause the placing of new orders in Myanmar some weeks ago. We hoped then that this would be temporary as we are committed to supporting our suppliers and their factories, and in turn, protecting the livelihoods of the workers in those factories.
"We are committed to honouring all existing orders with our suppliers in Myanmar, however long they take to fulfil, and have recommenced placing some orders with our key strategic suppliers in the country.
