Report alleges that China continues to use forced prison labour to produce exports to the US, in violation of US law and trade agreements

A staff research report of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission alleges that China maintains a network of prison labour facilities that use forced labour to produce goods intended for export – a violation of US-China trade agreements and US law. The report recommends federal legislation mandating not only disclosure of corporate anti-force labour efforts, but also taking steps to eliminate forced labour from supply chains based on internal corporate investigations.
