AKP Phnom Penh, January 19, 2012 –

The United States this morning launched a four-year, US$5.4 million counter-trafficking in persons program designed to support Cambodian government officials and civil society to coordinate efforts and combat all forms of trafficking in persons.

The official launch of the Counter-Trafficking in Persons II (CTIP II) program took place at the Raffles Hotel Le Royal in Phnom Penh and presided over by H.E. Sar Kheng, Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, and Mr. Jeff Daigle, Chargé d’Affairs, a.i. of the U.S. Embassy to Cambodia.
Speaking at the launching ceremony, H.E. Sar Kheng said Cambodia and the U.S. have actively cooperated in combating human trafficking, but the issue remains Cambodia’s challenge and priority. 

The Royal Government of Cambodia has acknowledged the importance of civil societies’ participation in fighting trafficking in persons, he stressed.

For his part, Mr. Jeff Daigle said CTIP II program will build on the notable achievements of CTIP I and continue working in the areas of coordination, prevention, protection, and prosecution, with an expanded focus on addressing labor trafficking and exploitation.

This program will be implementing by Winrock International in partnership with the Coordination of Action Research on AIDS and Mobility, South East Asia Investigations into Social and Humanitarian Activities, Legal Support for Children and Women, MTV EXIT Foundation, and other local civil society organizations.
