Asix-person delegation from the Government and NGOs is to attend a regional meeting
in Manila on trafficking of women and children.
The delegation has compiled a country paper on the problem of trafficking in Cambodia.
The preparatory paper says that "Cambodia is increasingly important as a sending,
receiving and transit country for trafficked women and children."
The paper cites geographical location, endemic poverty and underdeveloped law enforcement
mechanisms as providing and ideal environment for traffickers.
