WASHINGTON, (Reuters) – The U.S. Trade Representative’s office announced Tuesday that it would conduct an interagency assessment of trade policies and tools to combat forced labor in order to identify any gaps.

USTR announced that it will be seeking input from the labor organizations, survivors of forced labor, civil society groups, and other private sector organisations for its first ever focused strategy against forced labour.

According to the agency, it would also collaborate with the World Trade Organization (WTO) and its trading partners Mexico and Canada in order to promote work that aims at eliminating forced labor and child labor.
