GIZ, ILO set up Asian garment-textile sector hub to drive change



German development agency GIZ and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) have jointly set up an online platform to develop a more sustainable future for the global garment and textile sector. Asia Garment Hub (www.asiagarmenthub.net) is aimed at creating a one-stop-shop providing the latest news, insights and resources affecting work practices and sustainability for Asian garment and textile manufacturers and workers.

Describing its mission as being one of informing, educating, and spurring action to address critical challenges facing the Asian garment and textile sector, the platform said on its website that its ultimate aim is to drive real industry change.

It aims to do this by bringing together manufacturers, brands, trade unions, employer organisations and development partners, as well as journalists, civil society, policymakers and other interested parties in one, resource-rich central destination.

Key features of the Asia Garment Hub include a comprehensive resource library, an interactive industry map, country data and insights, as well as access to training, expertise and online discussions.

Access to the Hub is free, with website navigation and content offered in English and 10 other languages—Indonesian, Malay, Burmese Bengali, Chinese, Hindi, Khmer, Sinhalese, Urdu, and Vietnamese.

GIZ FABRIC is a regional project implemented by GIZ on behalf of the German ministry for economic cooperation and development (BMZ). ILO’s Decent Work in Garment Supply Chains Asia project is funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
