According to the International Labour Organization, more than 11 million people in the APAC region are victims of forced labor, accounting for well over half of the global estimated number of 21 million victims. It is incumbent that compliance professionals in the APAC region remain vigilant in spotting and blocking illicit earnings laundered through the financial system in order to combat migrant smuggling, sex trafficking and forced labor.
