Extractions: United States Department of Labour THE APPAREL INDUSTRY AND CODES OF CONDUCT: A Solution to the International Child Labor Problem? III. Implementation Experiences of Codes of Conduct in the U.S. Apparel Industry A. Introduction As has been reported in Chapter II, 36 of the 42 U.S. retailers and manufacturers of apparel which provided reportable responses to the Department of Labor voluntary survey stated that they had adopted some sort of policy prohibiting child labor in overseas production facilities. These policies takes different forms, from formal public codes of conduct to provisions banning the use of child labor in contracts between the foreign producer and the importing U.S. corporation. The fact that U.S. retailers and manufacturers of apparel have adopted policies against the use of child labor in the production of garments is a positive step toward the objective of eliminating the use of child labor. Clearly, for such policies to be truly effective, there has to be a commitment on the part of all interested parties to implement them. Consequently, a central objective of this study is to assess the implementation practices of U.S. apparel importers that have policies regarding child labor. Through the voluntary responses to the survey instrument sent out to U.S. manufacturers and retailers of apparel and follow-up phone interviews with respondents, the Department of Labor learned a great deal about the implementation of codes of conduct from the perspective of the U.S. companies that import the garments and originate the codes. Although these companies have generally been cooperative, company officials responding to the inquiries were not always able to provide definitive explanations regarding specific aspects of the implementation of their policies.

Extractions: Prodding the leaders of Japan and Corea to move quickly toward a free-trade agreement dominates the agenda of the 33rd Korea-Japan Business Council which opened Sunday in the southwestern Corean city of Kwangju. In attendance are about 300 prominent executives from both nations. Urging a free-trade agreement was the theme of the keynote address delivered by Park Yong-sung, chairman of the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The concept of an East Asian common market was first suggested several years ago by a leading Japanese politician. It quickly gained support among business leaders in Corea and China. An East Asian economic federation would be a logical if not inevitable response to the European Union and the North American Free Trade Agreement. The combined gross domestic product of an East Asian common market that includes Japan, China and Corea would roughly equal that of the EU and NAFTA.
