The United States recognizes the progress of Uzbekistan in protecting the citizens' labor rights and opens new perspectives for Uzbek cotton producers

On September 20, the U.S. Department of Labor released two reports that shine a spotlight on child labor and forced labor in nations around the world: the eighth edition of the List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor and the 17th annual edition of the Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor.

These reports, prepared by the Department’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB), highlight specific sectors in which child labor or forced labor persists in foreign nations, and describe the progress some countries have made in upholding their international commitments to eliminate these practices.

According to the U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta, these reports represent one of the Department of Labor’s key contributions to the global effort to protect workers in the United States and around the world by defending the rights of all people to live free of child labor, forced labor, human trafficking, and modern slavery.

This year the TDA report noted that Uzbekistan achieved moderate advancement for the first time, as a result of the Government of Uzbekistan’s substantial reduction of the mobilization of forced child labor for the cotton harvest. The Department of Labor simultaneously released a complimentary report, List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor. Cotton from Uzbekistan was removed from the list.
