Using Trade Tools to Combat Forced Labor: The Roles of Government, Business, and Civil Society

WITA Webinar WITA Online Event

U.S. law prohibits the importation of any product that was mined, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part by forced labor, including forced or indentured child labor. On September 30, 2020, the United States Department of Labor released two reports and updates to its efforts to combat international child labor and forced labor, including a list of goods produced in China under conditions of forced labor in violation of international standards.

Please join WITA as we discuss these efforts, as well as what business and civil society are doing to reduce child and forced labor around the world.
