Forum on sexual exploitation set for May 28

The Swedish Embassy and the Japan Committee for UNICEF will hold a meeting and international symposium May 28 in Tokyo on the problem of commercial sexual exploitation of children.

Attended by Queen Silvia of Sweden, a followup meeting of the World Congress Against Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children will take place in the morning in the embassy to provide an update on the problem and efforts since the conference was held last August in Stockholm.

At the end of the meeting, participants will issue a joint statement to fight the commercial sexual exploitation of children. The meeting will be followed by a symposium at Ginza Saison Theater where panelists, including House of Councilors member Sumiko Shimizu, will discuss the issue. More information on the event is available by calling the organization at (03) 3355-0161.
