"Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect that seeks greater equity in international 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."
Translating the 10 Fair Trade principles into languages throughout Asia is a key initiative of WFTO-Asia. So far our members have translated the principles into the following languages:
Bengali, Tamil, Kanda, Hindi, Bahasa, Lao, Mandarin, Nepali, Tagalog, Korean, Singhala, Thai, and Vietnamese.
