The Singapore Inter-Agency Taskforce on Trafficking in Persons

The Singapore Inter-Agency Taskforce on Trafficking in Persons was established in 2010 in recognition of the threat of Trafficking in Persons (TIP) in Singapore. Co-chaired by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) and the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), the Taskforce includes representatives from several government agencies. Recognizing the importance of engaging and educating industries and the public in the identification and prevention of TIP, the Taskforce launched a public education campaign in early 2013, in partnership with civil society organizations. In 2011, the Taskforce started work on a National Plan of Action (NPA) that is a roadmap for concerted action from 2012 to 2015. It will strengthen current policies and systems, as well as develop new ones to address current gaps.
