Enabling dedicated Fair Trade Organisations in Asia to deliver Fair Trade and to seek greater equity in international trade

Fair Trade

It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers and workers – especially in the South. Fair Trade Organizations, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the rules and practice of conventional international trade." -FINE
