G-7 trade ministers agree to exclude forced labor


Tokyo, Sept. 15 (Jiji Press)–Trade ministers from major Group of Seven countries agreed at a two-day meeting in Germany until Thursday to work to exclude forced labor from supply chains and to guarantee the conditions of fair competition, with China in the way.

The G-7 ministers said in a joint statement that they reaffirm their concern over all forms of forced labor and the use of child labor in supply chains.

Meanwhile, the ministers confirmed that their countries will maintain economic sanctions against Russia and support for Ukraine as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues.

They also agreed to reform the World Trade Organization, which has ceased to function properly.
