On July 29, 2016, the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) joined a Cotton Campaign letter urging the World Bank to seek commitments from the Uzbek government to cease interference and reprisals against independent human rights monitors and to reform its financial system used for its cotton sector. The letter is timed in advance of a round-table meeting at which the World Bank will meet with the Uzbek government, the International Labor Organization, and diplomatic missions in Uzbekistan in early August. It also follows a recent Cotton Campaign meeting with the World Bank. The letter is available here.
