On Monday, 14 March 2005 Japanese travel agents and tourist industry groups signed an international code of conduct to protect children from sexual exploitation in tourist destinations such as Southeast Asia. By signing the code, travel agents are required to implement six measures, including training personnel in countries that are travel destinations and putting a clause in contracts with local agents forbidding sexual exploitation of children.
The Code of Conduct for the Protection of Children from Sexual Exploitation in Travel and Tourism was launched by the United Nations Children's Fund and other relevant international organizations.
The Japan Association of Travel Agents, which includes major companies such as JTB Corp., has engaged in educational activities through training courses for its member companies.
