WRAP social compliance seminar receives good response
Nov '09
More than 250 people from across the apparel, footwear and furniture sectors attended the WRAP Awareness Seminar in Ho Chi Minh City on November 17th indicating the continuing importance given to social and environmental accountability by Vietnamese manufacturers.

Mr. Pham Gia Hung, Director of External Affairs for the Vietnam Textile & Apparel Association (VITAS) and Mr. Dang Quoc Hung, Vice Chairman of the Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of Ho Chi Minh City (HAWA) opened the half-day event. With a focus on raising awareness of social and environmental compliance in the industry, this seminar covered an overview of local labor laws and regulations, background and 12 principles of WRAP, the process of WRAP certification, and best practices of corporate social responsibility.

“The tremendous growth of the manufacturing sector in Vietnam has not come without its challenges, particularly in the areas of social and environmental management.” said Mr. Michael Lavergne, WRAP's Director for Asia, addressing the factory and association representatives. “We extend our congratulations to industry and labor organizations and to the Vietnamese people for your strong show of support when it comes to addressing and understanding these key issues.”

With dozens of facilities in Vietnam certified under WRAP's robust program of certification in labor, environmental and customs security compliance over the past year, the hard work that numerous organizations have undertaken continues to be rewarded with concrete results. As with elsewhere in Asia, WRAP continues to engage all players in its mission to certify lawful, ethical and humane manufacturing.
