AMMAN — The Labour Ministry is holding a two-day workshop to highlight efforts needed to address child labour across the Kingdom.

The workshop, which opened on Sunday, is implemented in cooperation with the International Labour Organisation and aims to identify the roles and means of coordination between all agencies concerned with addressing child labour, according to Shireen Fayez, head of the child labour section at the ministry.

Fayez said the ministry will implement a national framework to combat child labour in three governorates: Amman, Zarqa and Mafraq, adding that these efforts aim to protect children’s right to education.

Several local and international experts in child labour issues are attending the workshop.
