FIJI will have a robust and active child labour database by the end of the first quarter of 2013, says Labour Minister Jone Usamate.

"It will benefit all stakeholders with research and assist in developing appropriate policy intervention towards the eradication of the worst forms of child labour," he said.

"We realise that in order to be effective in dealing with child labour, we need to work in partnership with others," said Mr Usamate.

"Nine district interagency committees have been trained on their roles and responsibilities in relation to child labour cases," he said.
