VTV.vn - - Deputy PM Truong Hoa Binh has highlighted the fight against human trafficking as one of the primary tasks in the Vietnamese government’s effort to combat crime.

He stated that much attention has been devoted to the mission in terms of both fine-tuning the legal framework and enhancing law enforcement.

The Deputy PM was speaking at a meeting held on July 30 in the central province of Nghe An to mark the national day for preventing and combating human trafficking.

In his speech, Binh highlighted the serious socio-economic consequences of human trafficking, which violates the most basic human rights.

He stated that the crime does not only inflict mental and physical suffering on the victims and their families but also undermines social ethics and threatens public security.

On the occasion, the Deputy PM urged authorities at all levels to step up their communication campaigns to raise awareness among women and children so that they can protect themselves against human traffickers.

He also asked law enforcement agencies at central and local levels to work closely together and take various measures to combat the crime more effectively.

After the meeting, Deputy PM Binh, representatives of the Vietnamese Women’s Union, the Ministry of Public Security and local leaders joined a walk to raise awareness on human trafficking.
