More Stringent Child Labor Regulations

from Sunday Observer in Sri Lanka:

The government has begun cracking down on factories which use child labour in dangerous industries such as fire work manufacturing in a move to eradicate the use of children in these industries by 2016, Minister of Labour and Labour Relations Gamini Lokuge told the Sunday Observer.

“Sri Lanka has a good track record of child protection when compared to other South Asian countries so we are taking all necessary actions to avoid any violations” he said.
