This global pandemic Covid-19 has brought chaos to all our lives and businesses. GMAC would like to issue an appeal to all buyers sourcing from Cambodia to work with us so that we can all tide over these difficult times:
All parties in the global apparel supply chain are feeling the extreme burden caused by Covid-19. However, manufacturers (factories) operate on razor-thin margins and have much less ability to shoulder such burden as compared to our customers ( buyers). The consequential burden faced by our workers who still need to put food on the table is enormous and extreme.
We urge you to honor the terms of your purchasing contracts and fulfill your obligations by taking delivery and pay us for goods already produced and goods currently in production. This will allow us to continue to provide work to our 750,000 workers and provide us the ability to pay our workers and ensure the livelihoods of millions of Cambodians.
We appeal to all buyers to uphold your corporate and social responsibilities to your suppliers as well as to the workers employed in our sector.
Together, we can surely overcome this pandemic and protect the lives of our workers and their families and ensure the survival of our businesses.
