Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC) president Van Sou Ieng and secretary general Ken Loo met members of the European Parliament’s Committee of International Trade (INTA) in Brussels last week to discuss and lobby for retaining Cambodia’s ‘Everything But Arms’ (EBA) benefit. Sou Ieng said he met 27 INTA members, including its chairman.

GMAC requested the INTA members to retain Cambodia’s EBA status based on the country’s high compliance on labour and International Labour Organisation (ILO) foundational convention, he said.

GMAC said on its Facebook page that it is looking forward to a fair and positive result.

The European Union (EU) had launched the EBA withdrawal procedure in February 12, citing ‘serious human rights violations’, and ‘democracy set back’ in Cambodia.

The bloc ended its investigation on August 12 and would send its report to Cambodia within three months.
