COMMIT taskforce meeting aims to promote cooperation among GMS countries to combat human trafficking
MYANMAR will attend the third anti-human trafficking taskforce meeting of Coordinated Mekong Ministerial Initiative against Trafficking (COMMIT) Process, which will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 15 to 16 October.
The Myanmar delegation will include Police Brig-Gen Win Naing Tun, head of the Myanmar Police Force’s Anti-Trafficking in Persons Division, U Hsan Lin, assistant director from the Union Attorney-General Office and Daw Aye Mar Kyaw, project coordinator for UN Action against Trafficking in Persons (UN-ACT).
The meeting will focus on the achievements of the COMMIT Process and will include an Implementation Update. The participants will exchange best practices and discuss communication between countries, partnerships with CSOs, the COMMIT Capacity Baseline and methods of reporting the progress of COMMIT.
UN-ACT has extended invited officials from the ASEAN Secretariat, World Vision and the International Organisation for Migration to attend the meeting.
UN-ACT was established in 2014 to ensure a coordinated approach to more strategically and effectively combating trafficking in persons in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) and beyond. The project builds upon the work previously undertaken by the United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP).
