The American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA), in association with AmCham Vietnam, will conduct the AAFA Product Safety and Compliance Conference in Vietnam next month. The conference will be held at the Reverie Saigon in HCM City on October 18.
Through this conference, AAFA will bring together industry leaders to educate factories and suppliers in Vietnam on the critical components of manufacturing and delivering products that meet global regulations and industry compliance. The day-long event will include seminars on topics like product safety, compliance, understanding of regulations, corporate social responsibility, forced labour, workers’ safety, consumer demands on sustainability, trade relations, among others.
This initiative holds relevance, considering that Vietnam is one of the biggest garment hubs in Southeast Asia and, therefore, a good understanding of safety and compliance standards is a pre-requisite for every garment company in the country. For over two decades, AAFA, the political voice of the apparel and footwear industry, has been providing expertise in supply chain management, trade policy and brand protection. AmCham Vietnam too has been consistently promoting trade and investment between the United States and Vietnam.
