WASHINGTON — The U.S. keeps upping the pressure on Bangladesh over the safety of its apparel industry.
The U.S. Trade Representative’s office said Wednesday that the Asian nation has failed to meet several criteria outlined in an action plan on improving safety in the garment industry and reforming labor laws, leaving in place a suspension of its U.S. trade benefits that the Bangladeshi government has lobbied to have restored.
