slave labour: The report released Thursday raised Thailand from a watchlist to tier 2, the second-highest ranking, according to The Chronicle Herald. Neighboring Malaysia fell from tier 2 on the watchlist. The Trafficking in Persons annual report cited progress but also problems across the region, especially weak enforcement of protections against trafficking and slave and child labour. Hong Kong, China and Singapore were faulted for inadequate efforts to prevent sex trafficking and forced labour. Thailand has faced global scrutiny for the use of slave labour on fishing vessels and for being a transit hub for traffickers from nearby nations. Thai Deputy Prime Minister Prawit Wongsuwan said Friday he was grateful for the improved assessment as it reflects the determination and sincere intentions of the Thai government and our continued hard-work to tackle the issue of human trafficking.
