The Australian Human Rights Commission has released new human rights guidance, in partnership with the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI), for the apparel and footwear industry in Vietnam. It is meant to support business in understanding key human rights challenges in the apparel and footwear industry and how to appropriately respond.

Vietnam’s apparel and footwear industry is one of its most important industries, accounting for nearly 20 per cent of exports and employing 2.5 million people. The industry holds promising economic growth and development, but many challenges exist to the realisation of rights in the industry, especially in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The guidance was developed under the ‘Advancing Responsible Business Conduct’ Project, a collaboration between the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Commission, and was supported by the Australian government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).

“Globalisation has created opportunities but also many challenges for human rights. COVID-19 has highlighted the cracks in the global economy and the vulnerabilities faced by those in global supply chains,” commission president, Rosalind Croucher, said in a statement on April 15.
