GCNA Submission on the Inquiry into the Customs Amendment Bill 2020

The UN Global Compact Network Australia (UNGCNA) produced a submission for the Inquiry into the Customs Amendment (Banning Goods Produced By Uyghur Forced Labour) Bill 2020. In the submission, the GCNA supports the overarching intent of the Bill to strengthen Australia’s response to modern slavery in global supply chains. The GCNA encourage the Government to use the Bill as an opportunity to start further dialogue about ways to strengthen Australia’s smart mix of policy and legislative tools regarding business respect for human rights in all sectors and regions.
