China Plans to Combat Cross Province Trafficking for Forced Labour

October 04, 2007

In China the trend for trafficking people with the intention of exploiting them for labour and sexual services is increasing. Recently, a project officer from the International Labour Organisation revealed to a reporter that, based on the “Six Nation Anti-Trafficking Process” (China, Vietnam, Thailand, Burma, Lao PDR, Cambodia), the Chinese government is preparing the National Plan of Action on Anti-Trafficking.

Trafficking and the migrant population are inseparable. Data from the Ministry of Labour and Social Security indicates that, 60% of the labour force’s migration between provinces and within provinces is through unregulated channels, where there is a chance they could be trafficked. In particular young rural females, who blindly go to the cities for work, can easily fall into the hands of traffickers.
