Myanmar is drafting a national-level mechanism to receive complaints about forced labour, according to a senior government official.

Minister of Labour, Immigration and Population U Thein Swe told a national tripartite dialogue forum held in Yangon Saturday, attended by representatives of the government ministries, employers and workers, that the system will be set up in cooperation with other ministries.

President of the Confederation of Trade Unions in Myanmar U Maung Maung suggested that representatives of employers and employees should also be included in the mechanism.
