    “Human trafficking, the slavery of our times”

    In article published on the Autumn 2012 issue of “Links, the magazine of the Council of British Chambers of Commerce”, Myria Vassiliadou, the EU Anti-trafficking Coordinator announces that the Commission will establish a European Business Coalition for addressing trafficking in human beings by 2014.

    This coalition responds to the requests of many stakeholders, who emphasised the need to create partnerships with all actors, including the private sector, and to raise awareness and promoting practices reducing demand.

    In particular, the Commission intends to work together with the Coalition to develop models and guideline on reducing the demand for services provided by victims of trafficking in human beings, in particular in high-risk areas, including the sex industry, agriculture, construction and tourism.
