2016 World Day Against Child Labor: Child Labor and Supply Chains
Press Statement by John Kirby
To achieve this goal, the United States is determined to prevent goods produced by forced labor from entering our market. The Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 strengthened the prohibition on the importation of goods made, in whole or in part, with forced or indentured child labor. We will continue to work with other governments and civil society partners to promote education and foster human development to make a difference for children and their families.
