Transition from SMART Myanmar to MADE in Myanmar to Support Garment Sector: MADE in Myanmar Project Launch
MADE in Myanmar programme incorporates the next phase of the SMART Factories programme. MADE In Myanmar builds on its experience to improve working conditions in the apparel sector by working with factory managers and others to strengthen workplace dialogue. The project is funded through a 3-million euro grant from the European Union and implemented by the German developmental organization sequa in partnership with EuroCham Myanmar. The project will run till the end of 2026.
EuroCham Myanmar is a partner in the MADE in Myanmar programme because it believes that MADE can support brands to undertake continuous due diligence, in addition to brands engaging with stakeholders on the ground. By working together and sharing practices, brands can apply relevant leverage on suppliers and factories to resolve issues that arise.
Speaking at the launch, EuroCham Myanmar CEO Karina Ufert said,“While staying engaged in the country, brands can exercise their leverage to improve working conditions for hundreds of thousands of workers. Disengagement of the responsible brands will only lead to a further deterioration in the situation for the workers’ rights and contribute to greater unemployment”.
