Tuesday, May 24, 2005 9:05 AM

The Government of Mongolia and the International Labor Organization (ILO) have organized a meeting in Ulaanbaatar to address the effects of forced labor and to develop methods to speed up efforts to eradicate the practice.

Representatives from 10 Asian Countries, including Cambodia, Japan, China, South Koreao, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Singapore, Vietnam and Thailand, will meet at the Chinggis Hotel on 25-26 May 2005. Each country will either highlight one aspect of a program for which they would like support from other countries, or choose a program for which they will offer support. The meeting will provide encouragement, for countries who have not yet done so, to ratify the ILO Convention on Forced Labour and the Abolition of Forced Labour Convention.
