Video message by Volkan Bozkir, President of the 75th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, on high-level plenary meeting to review the global plan of action to combat trafficking in persons

Description

I am pleased to welcome you to the informal interactive multi-stakeholder hearing in support of the preparatory process towards the high-level plenary meeting to review the global plan of action to combat trafficking in persons.

Today is a key opportunity for Member States, and representatives from civil society, the private sector, academia, and the media to engage on a topic which has been a long-standing priority for the General Assembly.

It is critical that victims' voices lead the way here today. We also need to hear from people who are working on the ground with local communities, identifying and supporting victims of trafficking, as well as policymakers working on issues of domestic, regional and international policy in this area.
