Lee Kim said the company was confident that it would retain the existing customers and also attract new customers. He said this during a media and analysts briefing on Top Glove’s results for the fourth quarter.
Earlier in July, US customs claimed that they had sufficient information indicating labour abuse at the company. Later in March 2021, CBP said that they have conclusive evidence stating forced labour, after which they banned products from all subsidiaries of the company.
