Silvia Mera speaks at the Consumer Goods Forum in Bangkok

 

Silvia Mera, Program Director of the Mekong Club was one of the speakers at the Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) first “Responsible Operations & Sourcing” conference, in partnership with AIM-PROGRESS and ELEVATE, in Bangkok, Thailand. The event brought together over 220 business partners of the CGF and AIM-PROGRESS members. Suppliers, service providers, stakeholders and buyers joined to learn more about the consumer goods industry’s responsible sourcing expectations and to raise awareness around theCGF’s Forced Labour Priority Industry Principles and how they can be successfully implemented into business operations. Presentations from a mix of organisations allowed participants to hear from multiple perspectives on why and how to address the core drivers of forced labour.

Silvia was part of a panel on Remediation along with Didier Bergeret (CGF), Archana Kotecha (Liberty Asia) and Lara White (IOM).
