Why is Fair Trade important for Bali?
The key objective of Fair Trade, especially in Bali, is to empower and support Balinese artisans and farmers. Fair Trade rules ensure that employees receive a living wage. They also provide opportunities for advancement and assistance in a safe work environment. They also encourage environmentally sustainable practices and are open to public accountability. This helps in building long-term trade relations between Indonesia and the rest.
