Guyana jumps one place in latest US TIP report

Guyana has jumped one place to tier two, improving its standing on the United States’ state department Trafficking In Persons report 2011. The report says the government of Guyana is making significant efforts to fully comply with the standards for the elimination of trafficking in persons. It notes that the government has achieved an important milestone during the year under review. The report pointed to the first conviction of a trafficking offender and there was information that some public servants made efforts to try to rescue potential victims.

However, the US state department recommends that government raises awareness of forced labour and forced prostitution, as well as opportunities for help in and around mining areas.
