Government invests in fight against child labour
The government and business community and civil society organisations are joining forces in the Fund Against Child Labour (FBK), in order to further curtail this harmful practice. ‘This concerted approach should ensure success in reducing the numbers of children who are forced to work,’ said foreign trade and development minister Sigrid Kaag on the World Day Against Child Labour. ‘Fortunately, child labour is already in decline. But there are still far too many children at work. So we have every reason to step up our efforts.’
