Human trafficking is a global crime involving many source, transit and destination countries. We welcome the US State Department's 2005 Trafficking in Persons Report for raising awareness of the problem and seeking to promote action to resolve it. The UK is committed to doing all it can to combat trafficking, including working closely with governments around the world. We encourage those governments cited to increase their efforts to eliminate it.
