PETALING JAYA, Malaysia—The Malaysian Rubber Glove Manufacturers Association (MARGMA) held meetings with U.S. and United Kingdom representatives to address concerns over human trafficking and forced labor issues in its industry.
Two recent dialogue sessions involved discussions with officials from a number of U.S. government agencies and separately with a U.K. envoy to Malaysia, MARGMA reported March 7.
The aim, MARGMA said, was "to build strong working partnerships (toward) achieving our goals in staying ahead in compliance with international standards."
The sessions were led by MARGMA President Supramaniam Shanmugam, Vice President Hue Kon Fah, immediate past-President Denis Low and association CEO Chan Wone Fu.
From the U.S. were representatives of the Customs and Border Protection, Department of Labor, Bureau of International Labor Affairs, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement/Homeland Security Investigations.
