Editorial: Full support

In the last edition of NorWatch we highlighted Norwegian companies' secrecy with regard to their Chinese subcontractors within the shoes and sports-clothing industry. Well recognised manufacturers such as Helly Hansen and Gresvig refused to give out information for «reasons of competition». This is the policy in spite of the existence of extensive documentation that working conditions in this industry are far from satisfactory.

In the last edition of NorWatch we highlighted Norwegian companies' secrecy with regard to their Chinese subcontractors within the shoes and sports-clothing industry. Well recognised manufacturers such as Helly Hansen and Gresvig refused to give out information for «reasons of competition». This is the policy in spite of the existence of extensive documentation that working conditions in this industry are far from satisfactory.

The Norwegian daily business paper Dagens Næringsliv followed up on our initiative, and interviewed Minister of Trade Grete Knudsen before she left for China last month. She supports the demand that Norwegian companies should have an obligation to publicly inform which subcontractors they are using. She further states that it would be natural that «we, the Government, bring the issue of the lack of transparency among Norwegian companies on the subject of Chinese subcontractors up with NHO (the Norwegian industry organisation). Excellent! Do it!
