The latest global statistics reveal that over 40 million people across the world are currently considered to be in various stages of modern day slavery.
The Bali Process – Government and Business Forum 2017 is currently underway in Perth, Australia, bringing together governments and business leaders in a world’s first, to combat the fast growing scourge of modern slavery in the Indo Pacific region in the 21st century.
Group Director of the Capital Maharaja Organization Chevaan Daniel is attending the Forum on an invitation extended by the Australian Government.
The forum, chaired by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, has 45 Ministers from nations in the Indo-Pacific region as well as business leaders from the world’s largest companies represented – to strategise, partner and combat people smuggling, human trafficking, and related transnational crime.
The inaugural key note address was delivered by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop, who spoke compellingly on the multitude of challenges faced in the present day, as a result of modern slavery and the role of government and business in combating it.
This forum is unique in that it invites global business leaders to discuss and recommend to governments a clear set of objectives to assist them in implementing innovative and effective solutions to combat, prevent and ultimately eradicate the crimes of modern slavery.
The Capital Maharaja Organisation was selected to represent Sri Lankan business at this forum, with Group Director Chevaan Daniel addressing those gathered.
TCMOL has continuously engaged in multi-disciplinary initiatives to empower Sri Lankans facing obstacles in varying areas.
