Breakfast meeting with China Labour Bulletin

On May 11, Sweden-China Trade Council hosted a breakfast meeting with China Labour Bulletin’s founder and director, Han Dongfang, and deputy director, Shawn Shieh. Organised within the framework of SCTC’s Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Business.

discussions were held on the Chinese labour movement, the rise in strikes and labour disputes in China, and the new law on foreign NGOs and what this means for foreign business and other organisations in China.  Han Dongfang has been a leading advocate for workers’ rights in China for more than two decades. He first came to international prominence during the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989 but the bulk of his work has been with China Labour Bulletin, a labour rights group he established in Hong Kong in 1994. In the past ten years, China Labour Bulletin has been the main advocate for the establishment of workplace collective bargaining in China. In addition to his work as an activist, Han conducts weekly interviews with Chinese workers on Radio Free Asia. CLB
