Kyrgyzstan has the worst form of child labor exploitation, Asilbek Toktogulov, Chairman of the Federation of Trade Unions of Kyrgyzstan, said at the meeting of the National Advisory Committee on Elimination of Child Labor in Tobacco Industry.
“These children do not attend school, work on tobacco fields harms their health. A child is deprived of right to obtain education and to become a productive citizen of Kyrgyzstan. This is fact,” he said.
“It is true that Kyrgyzstan has the worst form of child labor exploitation, not only in tobacco growing, but at the markets and other spheres,” Asilbek Toktogulov stated.
