MITI to look into forced labour allegation against Top Glove

 Publish date: Tue, 30 Mar 2021, 9:29 PM

KUALA LUMPUR: The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) will look at the full report on the allegation by the United States that Top Glove Corp Bhd had used forced labour in the production of its disposable glove in Malaysia.
Its minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali said MITI would continue to facilitate the industry to understand the requirement of Malaysia's export market and to resolve any trade and investment related matters.
"We have not conducted any investigation yet and certainly we need to look at the full report. The ministry is looking into the details and certainly we will facilitate our industries.
"This is a domestic policy matter (with the USA) which our industries need to comply with," he told the media on the sidelines of the signing ceremony between Widad Business Group and Bin Zayed International LLC, today. 
Mohamed Azmin said MITI had organised a series of outreach sessions to improve understanding and create awareness of industry regulatory requirements of the export market, including for the USA.
According to an international news report on Tuesday, the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Office of Trade has published a forced labour finding against Top Glove Corp Bhd in the Customs Bulletin and in the Federal Register.
The US CBP has also directed authorities at all US ports of entry to begin seizing disposable gloves produced by Top Glove.
