The Labour Department released the first annual report on the worst forms of child labour in 143 trade beneficiary countries and territories as required under the Trade and Development Act of 2000. Under this act, trade beneficiary countries and territories are required to implement their international commitments to eliminate the worst forms of child labour. The report presents information on the nature and extent of the problem in each of these 143 countries and territories and the efforts being made by their governments to eliminate the worst forms of child labour. The department’s Bureau of International Labour Affairs conducted the research and prepared the report. “This report provides information useful in understanding the phenomenon of child labour around the world. Such understanding is critical in developing policies and programs to address this issue.” said Tom Moorhead, deputy under secretary for international affairs. The report is available online at www.dol.gov/ILAB/reports/iclp/pubs. (US Newswire)
