The event was attended by nearly 50 delegates from provincial agencies, departments and sectors, leaders from the districts of Kim Boi, Ky Son and Da Bac, and Hoa Binh city and representatives of Women’s Unions of 11 districts and Hoa Binh city.

At the workshop, they watched a documentary on the fight against human trafficking conducted by the Vietnam Women’s Union Central Committee and listened to a report on this work nationwide.

Up to 892 or over 80 percent of the cases sold people to China with 1,187 traffickers and 2,319 victims, accounting for over 86 percent of the total trafficked persons. A large number of cases were discovered in the provinces bordering China like Lao Cai, Ha Giang, Dien Bien and Quang Ninh.

Traffickers formed many trans-provincial and trans-national rings or gangs using sophisticated ruses to trick people into prostitution, illegal marriages or forced labour.

Participants at the event looked into the human trafficking situation in Vietnam, especially the trafficking of people to China. Hoa Binh province hasn’t recorded any such cases in recent years.
