Saturday’s Nikkei reported that an increasing number of Japanese firms have decided to stop using raw cotton produced in China’s Xinjiang province amid the rising international outcry over the Chinese government’s human rights violations there. Many corporations that plan to continue using such products are also now committed to ensuring that their Chinese business partners comply with the appropriate employment regulations, with some saying their business contracts will be terminated if the partners are found to be engaging in forced labor or other improper practices.
