Child Labour Forum – Participation by EFPNG

The Employers Federation of Papua New Guinea was represented at the Sub-Regional Child Labour and Trafficking Forum held in Nadi, Fiji from 12 – 16 April 2015. The Federation was represented by Mr Winston Yuka. The Forum aimed at the exchange of ideas, knowledge and best practice among Pacific Island countries and the development of an action plan aimed at curbing Child Labour in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific. In Papua New Guinea, a Child Labour Unit will be set up at the Department of Labour and Industrial Relations which will be dedicated to addressing child labour. The existing National Action Plan on Child Labour will be reviewed, an appropriate Child Labour Legislation will be created and on-going child labour campaigns will be strengthened.

The Federation will regularly update its membership on compliance aspects of international and national child labour legislations and policies where necessary.
