TO GO WITH Vietnam-Thailand-Cambodia-Bangladesh-textile-labour,lead-FOCUS by Cat Barton Cambodian workers walk past a textile factory in the outskirts of Phnom Penh on May 2, 2013. From factory fires to slave labour, the growth of mass manufacturing in South East Asia has not been problem-free, but having shed its 'sweatshop' reputation, the region could have lessons for Bangladesh. In Cambodia, where the garment industry developed in the 1990s, avoiding the 'sweatshop' label was a conscious strategy, with the country embracing an ILO Better Factories programme -- which union leaders say has only been minimally effective.
