Long Abstract: The Government leader made the appeal at a conference to launch the National Action Programme to combat the trafficking of women and children from now till 2010, in Ho Chi Minh City on Saturday. He stressed that the elimination of modern day human trafficking must be accompanied by the resolution of other socio-economic issues. Deputy PM Khiem is head of the Steering Committee for the National Action Programme to combat the trafficking of women and children. The Programme will see the participation of the Viet Nam Women's Union, which is responsible for campaigns to raise the community's awareness of the issue; the Ministry of Public Security, for undertaking the fight; the Borderguard Command, for receiving and supporting victims; and the Justice Ministry, for building a legal system for the fight. The Police Department reported that the trafficking of women and children has grown from scattered and isolated cases into an organised, trans-national crimes involving international factors. The department estimated that dozens of thousands of Vietnamese children and women have been thus far trafficked to other countries to become sex workers, illegal wives, or to be used for other commercial and inhumane purposes. It also warned that the problem would remain a hard nut to crack in coming years and that human trade would reach farther destinations than China and Cambodia.-
