AMMAN – A workshop on combating human trafficking began in Amman on Tuesday in a bid to boost the ability to recognise cases of human trafficking and exploitation at a work environment and to provide better protection for migrant workers.

Organised by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in cooperation with the Labour Ministry, the three-day workshop seeks to assist governments and NGOs in order to eliminate such problems.

Labour Ministry Secretary Hamadah Abu Nejmeh said the workshop, financed by the EU,  is an opportunity to exchange information and learn about negative cases that can be confronted and dealt with in the best interests of the society.
