VTV.vn - On July 2, a letter believed to be sent from Thai conglomerate Central Group stated that its supermarket chain Big C will suspend its purchases of apparel from Vietnamese suppliers beginning this month.

Central Group attributed the decision to its goal of restructuring the group’s apparel business operations in the Vietnamese market. Following the decision, the group faced opposition from Vietnamese textile businesses and people.

Consequently, suppliers, along with garment and textile owners, held banners in front of the Group’s office and accused the Group of unethical business practices.
