Wal­mart to Buy more Cam­bo­dian Gar­ments, Footwear

Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was -

Re­tail gi­ant Wal­mart will raise or­ders of Cam­bo­dian gar­ments and footwear prod­ucts this year and will also start buy­ing travel goods man­u­fac­tured in the south­east Asian na­tion, says a state­ment by the com­pany. The an­nounce­ment has come in the back­drop of an es­ca­lat­ing diplo­matic row be­tween the coun­try and Western na­tions who have been crit­i­cal of the cur­rent regime. In a let­ter ad­dress­ing the gov­ern­ment, the re­tail com­pany said Cam­bo­dia is a key el­e­ment in its in­ter­na­tional sup­ply chain and it will help Cam­bo­dian man­u­fac­tur­ers in­crease com­pet­i­tive­ness, pro­duc­tiv­ity and ef­fi­ciency. It was re­ported that Wal­mart of­fi­cials vis­ited the coun­try in early Novem­ber to meet top gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and visit lo­cal fac­to­ries and ex­pressed sat­is­fac­tion over the qual­ity of gar­ments, footwear and lug­gage prod­ucts bear­ing the ‘Made in Cam­bo­dia’ la­bel.
