TIP is a significant transnational crime which exploits vulnerable victims. As people increasingly move across borders in search of economic opportunities, this creates an opportunity for traffickers to exploit individuals with promises of good jobs and economic opportunity. Singapore is an attractive hub of economic activity with high people flows. Hence, Singapore is no less vulnerable than other countries and would be seen as an attractive destination country by human trafficking syndicates.
The Inter-agency Taskforce on Trafficking in Persons (TIP) is seeking feedback on the proposed National Plan of Action which will guide Singapore’s response to TIP from 2012-2015.
We seek your full support to ensure that the consultation exercise is productive and focused, and we would like to request that respondents follow these guidelines:
- Identify yourself and the organisation you represent (if any), as that would assist in our understanding of the impact of the proposed changes to different stakeholder groups;
- Keep your comments and suggestions clear and concise;
- Focus your comments on the proposed initiatives, and suggestions of new initiatives (if any)
Your feedback is important to us and we encourage you to submit your feedback to the Inter-agency Taskforce Secretariat through this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
