Jo Swinson has welcomed East Dunbartonshire’s official unveiling as a Fairtrade Zone, which took place today.
The successful bid makes East Dunbartonshire the fourth Fairtrade Zone in Scotland.
Jo offered congratulations and commended the hard work of the team behind the bid, saying:
“My warmest congratulations go to the team behind the Fairtrade Zone bid, without whose hard work and dedication achieving this award would have been impossible. By achieving Fairtrade Zone status, East Dunbartonshire residents make a bold statement, that relations with developing countries should be based on fairness and respect, not exploitation.”
